Beautiful bright purple, with a marvellous fragrant floral bouquet, maybe some raspberry notes, majoring on the purity. This is not massively dense but has good acidity along with crunchy fruit. A great source of pleasure.
The 2014 vintage is their first to be certified organic by Ecocert, which will appear on the label. Sadly it is another small crop, no bigger than 2013. While Caroline Lestimé was, as usual, self-deprecating with regards to her wines, we can tell you that they are absolutely stunning this year. We cannot remember a better vintage in her cellar.
The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots (Rouge) has more fruite on the nose compared to the Clos Saint-Jean: strawberry and Morello, a touch of blueberry coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, good fruit intensity, just a touch of salinity towards the chalky finish with good length. This is a fine Morgeot Rouge.
