Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeots" 2007, Bachelet-Ramonet
When I tasted at this domaine I had the sense that they produced decent wines at reasonable prices. I'd say that I have been more than impressed by the longevity of the wines. This Chassagne rouge proved to be phenomenal. Proper pinot barnyard nose. Black cherry, rye bread steeped in plum schnapps, dark chocolate, Mexican mole poblano, pungent and sweet aniseed, forest flower honey, truely multi-layered, surprising sweetness for a 2007 showing the superior ripening of the CdB over the CdN. On the palate this red Chassagne-Morgeots 1er Cru 2007 has a wonderful black cherry flavour, there is plum and cassis fruit, it is very complete, rounded tannins, impressive impact, remarkable! Scores 80/100 which shows excellent wine-making skill to extract the maximum quality out of the terroir.
