Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 1998 Louis Latour

  • 24 bottles left in stock

Easily pulled cork, but it seemed to have crumbled very slightly into the bottle somehow, yet nose is fresh and very clean, with no sign of age or flaw. Straw to golden colour, not unduly dark but evidence of age.  In the mouth, there's still some (very little) fruit, quite pronounced alcohol and some acid noticeable in a fresh mouthfeel.  In many ways this drinks like a much lesser, much younger and much lighter Burgundy (ie a 4-5 year old Savigny les Beaune) although after a while there's something of a damp cellar on the follow that is cleverly masked by the introduction of some Habas Fritas produced by The Nut Men of Church Road, Tunbridge Wells and purchased at Terry's Butchers in Brenchley. Drink with food and, notwithstanding the odd duff (= full refund) there's a lot of pleasure still to be had from this one. Our favourite (so far) out of all that we've tasted from the old yellow tops, and we're starting to notice that anything on whose label old M Latour has deigned to stamp the word 'Morgeot' tends to have outperformed others of same class and vintage
