Description

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.

Louis Jadot is one of the largest and most famous wine producers and negociants in the Burgundy wine-growing region. The origins of the company date back to 1859 when the business was fouded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Over time the company has acquired plots of vines is some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region including Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and many more. Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé (they own the fantastic Domaine Ferret). Today the business is headed by Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son.

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). The first Duc was Marshall MacMahon victor of Magenta, ennobled by Napoleon 111 and first President of the 3rd Republic.
