One of the last great White Burgundy's of 2017, we were able to get a small reload on these, coming directly from the Louis Jadot cellars. One of the top vineyards that Jadot sources from, the wines from here are consistently impressive and, in a classic vintage like '17, a must-try for the Burgundy lover. No increase in pricing here, these are available at our original rate, but quantity is limited.

One of the great buys from Louis Jadot this is a cuvee we look forward to every vintage. Though this has been on the market for a few years, the 2017s are showing very well right now and are some of our favorite wines right now. Sourced from an enclosed parcel within the Morgeot vineyard owned by Domaine du Duc de Magenta, which is behind an old chapel. Jadot has a long-term contract with the Domaine, and the grapes are vinified at Jadot. Hand-harvested, softly pressed, fermented in a third new oak, and aged about 15 months on the lees before bottling. The 2017 here is one of the best of all time and is a classic example that will age gracefully into the long term. One of the last great '17s left, this is a bottle not to pass up.
Wine Enthusiast (Roger Voss) 94 points! "While wood aging shows on the nose, the palate of this wine is more about generous fruit and intense acidity. Freshness is balanced by the mineral texture and the almost tannic character of the fruits. The wine will need some time, so drink from 2023"
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 93+ points! "A candidate for extended cellaring in Jadot's range this year is the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle (Domaine du Duc de Magenta), a beautifully incisive wine that meets the high expectations I formed when I tasted it from barrel a year ago. Opening in the glass with aromas of crisp Anjou pear, peach, fresh pastry and honeycomb, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and youthfully tight-knit, with fabulous structural tension and a racy spine of acidity. Bottled under Diam 30, this tensile but concentrated Morgeot will really begin to sing in six or seven years."
Vinous (Neil Martin) 92-94 points! "The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle – a monopole of the domaine, released as usual under the Duc de Magenta label – has an attractive white peach and white-chocolate-tinged bouquet that gains intensity with aeration, displaying impressive definition and vigor. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, more complex than the Abbaye de Morgeot and more nuanced toward the poised, mineral-driven finish. The slight nuttiness on the aftertaste completes a very impressive Chassagne. (DIAM GC closure) (Drink between 2020-2034)"
