Louis Latour Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 2011 offers a golden yellow colour with luminous hints of green. Discreet on the nose, floral aromas are revealed. Smooth notes of black-wood and elderberry appear. The mouth is ample and has an interesting length. On the palate, aromas of vanilla bring a saline finish.
The wines of Chassagne-Montrachet offer great value and timeless image. These wines command lower prices compared with those from the neighbouring appellations of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, and represent good value for money. The wines are bold and reminiscent of exotic fruits and Morgeot, which lies mid-slope with a south-easterly exposure, is a perfect example of this style. Morgeot lies on the border between the C√¥te d’Or and Saone-et-Loire regions, which was a boundary in the Gallo-Roman period. At this time this plot of land was called Morga from the Latin margo which means edge border from which today’s name Morgeot is derived.
