    Morgeot is a world-famous parcel with a soil composed of chalk on the upper crust while going toward more clay content when digging deeper.

  • Characteristic

    After the challenges thrown with the vintage 2012, we were hoping for a peaceful 2013.But capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. Defying all weather forecasts, she never let up. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, our pickers had to wait until the end of September to take up secateurs.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Delicate fine white meats such as poultry or veal in sauce, fish, well-spiced couscous, curries or stir-fries, salmon, crawfish, lobster, or even foie gras.

  • Tasting note

    The bouquet is very complex with creamy and hazelnuts aromas. The palate is very persistent: very good length. White wine with a strong personality, quite opulent.
