Domaine de Duc de Magenta Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot Monoploe Clos de la Chapelle Louis Jadot Magenta Blanc 1988

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £15 from the www.cellartrade.co.uk website.In the south of the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy there is a slope known as Mont Rachet [bare mountain] between the villages of Puligny and Chassagne [both of which have appended Montrachet to their names]. The Chassagne-Montrachet appellation was originally created for white wines only in 1937 but extended to reds as well in 1970 and refers to the two communes of Chassagne-Montrachet and Remigny.There are three grand cru vineyards and 50 premier cru of which Morgeot is one.The four and a half hectare Clos de Chapelle vineyard once belonged to the Abbey of Morgeot but later by the Dukes of Magenta as sole owners [Monopole] In recent years Louis Jadot have had a long term contract to manage the vineyard and vinify the wine.I started my bottle last night with my supper of fried kingfish.It is a dry wine but not bone dry. There is some melon,pear and peach style fruit and there are strong citrus overtones especially on the finish.I thought it an OK white wine that went well with my fish but I have had fruitier and more flavoursome chardonnays for less money

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.
