Chassagne-Montrachet "Morgeot" Rouge

Premier Cru

The story from the Marquis de Laguiche is that he would trade two bottles of Montrachet for one bottle of Chassagne-Montrachet red. Today there is little red Chassagne as Pinot has been replaced with Chardonnay, and the wines in general are not regarded (or made) at the elevated quality level of the past. This wine brings you to Corton or Gevrey, with the length of a Grand Cru and a texture that is creamy with fresh fruit flavors.
