"The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot (from the domaine side of Jadot) has a brioche-scented, slightly creamy bouquet, the oak more conspicuous than its Chassagne cousins at the moment. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, fresh and lively with quite a composed and tensile finish that feels harmonious and assured. One to watch.

These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot"." (WA)

"Full straw-yellow. Aromas of yellow peach and spices are complemented by a honeyed nuance. Broad and rich but with good citrus lift to its white peach and lemon flavors. A distinct step up in energy and definition from the Baudines. Sound acidity frames and extends the finish." (VM)

"A deft application of wood frames the overtly ripe though not exotic nose that features notes of white peach, resin, petrol and lightly spiced pear. There is once again excellent volume and solid mid-palate concentration to the rich, powerful and quite broad-ranging flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract that confers an almost chewy texture to the vibrant and solidly long if slightly rustic finish" (BH)

"Planted around an old abbey, the vineyard has rich soil that gives this wine its open, generous nature. Spicy with plenty of rich yellow fruit and apple flavors as well as toast, this wine is still young. It has great potential with its ripe mineral texture and good acidity at the end. Drink from 2022." (WE)
