93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

  This is also very firmly reduced at present and will need additional time to integrate its SO2 addition. There is both excellent power and concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that avoid any sense of heaviness to the citrus-tinged acid spine shaping the seriously persistent finish where a hint of wood appears. This is as good an example of this wine as I can remember seeing.    (6/2018)

  The 2016 vintage of Marquis de Laguiche Morgeot has turned out utterly classical in profile and purity. The bouquet is a fine, elegant blend of pear, lemon zest, pastry cream, chalky minerality, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a rock solid core, impeccably soil signature, bright, zesty acids, and marvelous focus and grip on the very long, crisp and well-balanced finish. This will drink with great style from the moment it is released, but also has the depth and balance to age long and gracefully. (Drink between 2018-2035)    (11/2017)

  Pale, bright yellow. Pure but much more closed on the nose than the Folatières, hinting at yellow fruits, subtle brown spices, lime leaf, lemon verbena, white pepper and a faint vegetal aspect. Broad and plush on the palate, showing an almost glyceral texture yet coming across as quite dry and unforthcoming, with a hint of apple from a remaining trace of malic acidity (the wine finished its malo shortly before my visit) as well as some primary fermentation notes and a floral nuance. Finishes with a phenolic dusty quality. Hard to taste today but shows very good potential. I may be underrating this cuvée. For his part, winemaker Faure-Brac likes the diversity of flavors shown by this wine, which he says is a function of the wide range of ripeness by parcel. (ST)    (9/2017)

  The Laguiche Morgeot is lovely this year, opening in the glass with aromas of pear, citrus zest, toasted nuts and a framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is tense, grippy and unusually austere for a 2016, but not excessively angular. This is a wine with some cellaring potential. Drinking Window 2019 - 2030. (WK)    (10/2017)

  The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot (Marquis de Laguiche) was affected by the frost, and hence 50% of the fruit was lost. The nose is pleasant with scents of white peach and citrus lemon, although it does not quite have the vigor of the Embasees. The palate is well balanced with a ripe, sorbet-fresh entry of orange and pear, quite energetic toward the finish that fans out in confident fashion. This gets better with acquaintance and deserves a couple of years once in bottle. (NM)    (12/2017)
