Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot"

There are 19 climats which make up Morgeot and the site itself is nearly one-fifth of the total appellation, so there is a lot of variety in quality from this 1er Cru site. François’ rows are in “Tête du Clos” and “Les Grands Clos,” directly in the mid-slope and center of Morgeot. His rows in “Les Grands Clos” are directly opposite the Abbey ruins, across the small vineyard street, in the climat “Morgeot.” François has both chardonnay (0.32ha) and pinot noir (0.32 ha) planted here. The vines in “Tête du Clos” were planted in 1971 and the vines in “Les Grands Clos” were planted in 1987. This Morgeot is spicier than Lequin’s Vergers and it has more body as well. It displays a velvety texture and impressive length.
