Louis Jadot Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru is a white Burgundy from the village of Chassagne Montrachet. Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne Montrachet is one of the 5 villages of the prestigious Côte de Blancs. Facing east and south-east, the white Premier Cru soils are mainly made of brown clay and limestone. Chassagne Montrachet produces 70 hectares of premiers crus. The Morgeot vineyard is one of the top two or three 1er Crus (climats) in the village.
This wine has a rather long name. I think, technically the full name would be Louis Jadot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Monopole Clos de la Chapelle, Domaine Duc de Magenta! This can be explained because the wine is made from grapes from Domaine Duc de Magenta for whom Louis jadot exclusively vinifies and distributes wines and has done on a very long term basis. The Clos de La Chapelle is the vineyard within Morgeot that the grapes are sourced from that surrounds an old chapel. In addition, the whole vineyard is owned by Domaine Duc de Magenta – so it is classed as as a monopole as well (literally monopoly).
Louis Jadot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Monopole Clos de la Chapelle is fermented in wooden barrels, after which it is aged in barrel for 12-15 months before being bottled.
