"The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle (Duc de Magenta) is showing very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, marzipan, beeswax and a subtle framing of smoky oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, dense and thickly textured, with imposing concentration and chewy dry extract but balanced by succulent acids, concluding with a long, mineral finish. While the frost has made this atypically concentrated, this Morgeot remains in balance and appears to have all the necessary elements for a very interesting evolution in bottle."

"Pale lemon-yellow. Very reticent nose hints at lemon drop and oak char. Then chewy, penetrating and rather powerful on the palate, conveying a strong impression of structure and an element of grape skins that borders on rustic. Boasts an inherent opulence to its citrus peel and mineral flavors but this is very backward today and much less expressive than the Abbaye de Morgeot, with its tannins currently shutting down its fruit. Clearly in an awkward stage and in need of cellaring. My current score may ultimately look overly conservative." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
