Implausible Harmony:
2014 Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche

Posted by Ian McFadden

Drouhin's 2014 Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is monumental.

This is a wine that basked in the greatness of the 2014 white Burgundy vintage. It works on a scale that's breathtaking, and it does so with astonishing rigor.

The 1er Cru Morgeot is known for producing somewhat fleshy and rounder wines. Drouhin's Marquis de Laguiche is something entirely different. The Marquis de Laguiche is broad and expansive, but it's pulled together by an incredible internal architecture.

At its best, Marquis de Laguiche is buoyed by a core of minerality and citrus notes that add a fascinating dynamic element to the wine's raw power.

From my earliest tastings of the 2014 white Burgundies, I was taken aback by their balance and harmony, by their incredible sense of completeness. What this means for the Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is a wine of extraordinary, gripping presence that seems to walk on tip-toe.

This is a wine that shocks you with how many registers its able to work on and the seamless way all of them are integrated. When I witness something like this, it really drives home how special the vintage is. Don't miss.

2014 Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet
1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche

Burghound: "A completely different aromatic profile is present here with its smoky array of earth, resin and various white orchard fruit scents. On the palate it's immediately clear that this is a big wine with impressive mid-palate concentration and overt power that continues onto the mouth coating and balanced finish that is very solidly structured. This won't win any awards for elegance but it absolutely avoids the heaviness that Morgeot can often display. Moderate patience required."
