On the palate the wine there is a balance of charm and generosity, which are controlled by a refined, elegant acid. All of this ultimately gives stunning honey-citrus effect.
Soft fragrance with notes of apple, pear and spice. The aroma Abbaye de Morgeot - an intriguing mixture of burnt oak and almond. It is also rich in minerals and soft fruit.
Great in combination with white meat, pork, turkey, crab and lobster.
Abbaye de Morgeot located in the southern part of the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet on a hillside near the village of Santenay. The soil is reddish due to the presence of iron compounds in it. It consists mainly of limestone subsoil, very suitable for varieties Pinot Noir, but with the exceptional and unique style of Chardonnay. Olivier Leflaive owns 2.5 acres of vineyard. Vinification takes place in oak barrels (French oak species vosges or Allier), the volume of which 228 liters. Grapes are harvested from a single vineyard, winemaking exposed separately from berries collected from another vineyard. Kept wine on the lees, periodically exposing him battonazhu. After about 12-15 months, the wine is removed from the sludge, assembled and transferred to a stainless steel container. After a few weeks, the wine is clarified. It is bottled in 15-18 months.
