International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(14.6% alcohol; still a bit of malic acidity remaining): Medium yellow. Ripe peach and apricot dominate the nose. Fat, sweet and seamless, with an almost exotic fruit quality nicely countered by sound ripe acidity (the finished wine will have about 4.4 g/l acidity). Large-scaled but also subtle and harmonious wine that conveys a strong impression of sweetness. The grape sugars mounted quickly due to millerandage, noted Drouhin. This is a wine of impressive size but I find the Corton-Charlemagne more representative of the 2010 vintage.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2011
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The terrific 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is beautifully balanced from start to finish. It comes across as more reserved than the Folatieres, with enough acidity and overall structure to frame the fruit. As always, this is a big, broad-shouldered white that needs time in bottle to settle down. Veins of brisk, saline minerality frame the finish. This is all finesse and class. Incidentally, a recent bottle of the 2002 was fabulous.Author: Antonio Galloni
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
