Professional Wine Reviews for Jean Noel Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Petit Clos 2013

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Petits Clos (which used to be labeled 'Morgeots') has a precise, floral bouquet that shows the most clarity of Caroline's premier crus at the moment. The palate is well balanced with a keen citric thread, just a little spice and very good weight in the mouth. The finish is quite tangy and long and completes what is clearly a flavor-packed Chassagne.

Additional Information on Jean Noel Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Petit Clos 2013

Winery: Jean Noel Gagnard

Varietal: Chardonnay

Despite having its origins in western France, Chardonnay's immense popularity and flexibility quickly meant that before long, there wasn't a wine producing country in the world which wasn't investing in this fascinating and versatile grape varietal. Today, Chardonnays manage to win fine wine competitions and satisfy supermarket shoppers simultaneously, due to the fact that this grape varietal can take on many characteristics and features of where it is grown and how it is handled. Indeed, this green skinned grape is renowned for not having so much unique flavor within the fruit, but is very sensitive to the features of the terroir it is grown in, as well as to aging As such, it isn't unusual to find bottles of single variety Chardonnay wine described as holding notes of white stone, mountain waters, or other such geological features alongside the more predictable fruit descriptions This makes Chardonnay grape varietal wines an exciting world to delve into – full of surprises, full of delights.

Region: Burgundy

In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region's warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.

Appellation: Cote De Beaune

The historic and utterly enchanting French region of Cote De Beaune has been producing what are widely regarded as many of the world's finest wines for centuries. The wine industry in Cote De Beaune predominantly revolves around the cultivation and processing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, which flourish under the hot summer sunshine which typifies the area. Mineral rich soils, sea breezes and centuries of experience and expertise help in growing these characterful grapes and transforming them into something truly remarkable. Cote De Beaune white wines tend to be intense, packed full of fascinating fruit flavors and plenty of mineral character, thanks to the fine features of the terroir being expressed through the juice of the Chardonnay grapes. The red wines, on the other hand, are very good indeed - light, fruity and irresistible.
