The Seldom Seen Premier Cru Abbaye de Morgeot‏

Berthelemot Abbaye Morgeot Header

Great Quality at an Affordable Price

  

Around 1550 Cistercian monks from the Abbey of Maizieres built the Morgot Abbey in the hamlet of Chassagne-Montrachet.


 

Today, the Abbey is uninhabited and in decay but it lends its name to the vineyards surrounding it which in effect lie within the 1er Crus Morgeot and La Chapelle.

 

The soil here is limestone marl, red-tinted with ferrous oxides on a layer of bathonian limestone pebbles. Unlike much of Morgeot this part of the vineyard was traditionally a white wine site. It produces a more mineral wine than most of Morgeot hence the reason that it is labelled with more detail.

 

In 2011 Domaine Berthelemot purchased a 0.5316 hectare parcel in this interesting vineyard. The first vintage is 2012 and we are delighted to have some of this wine in stock.

 

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot 2012

Berthelemot Abbaye Label 2Nose is powerful and underpinned with strong mineral notes. Attractive aromas of pear, spices and white flowers. Textured mouth feel, tightly wound with citrus and stone. Intense but not heavy with a detailed, long finish. The acidity is compelling. Delicious! DH
