Domaine Borgeot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Morgeot' 2014
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Morgeot’ is a big vineyard made up of lots of sub-divisions. Much of it is more apt for Pinot Noir than Chardonnay, but that’s another story. But the parts that are good for Chardonnay are really, really good. And a proper Morgeot like this one from the Borgeots has weight, power and depth. It is dense, intense; verging on spicy with a silky finish. One of the great white Burgundies.
Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune White 2015
Jean-Jacques Girard knows Savigny les Beaune. And while 85% of Savigny is red, there is a lovely strain of minerality that comes out of this valley. and with the village appellation Savigny les Beaune blanc, Jean Jaques shows us what is possible. The nose is like an apple orchard, fresh fruit and apple pie spices in the air. Rich, supple, pure, and then a bite of that pie! This one is ripe, fresh and shows a good deal of complexity.
