Louis Jadot, Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1996

The Chassagne Morgeot 1996 from Jadot is approaching a state of maturity. The bouquet is showing quite mature notes – hazelnuts, honey and a buttery yellow fruit. On the palate matured fruit – again fat buttery notes – held together by the powerful 1996 acidity. The finish is quite long and mineralic with the classic 1996 citrus notes. It’s showing good harmony and freshness with the citrus notes in the finish adding a good balance to the somewhat dense fruit. A lovely mature white Burgundy.
