Wine Critic Reviews for 2017 Marc Morey Chassagne Montrachet Chenovettes

Located in what Sabine Mollard calls 'the valley of death', this premier cru was wiped out by frost in 2016 but is back with some aplomb in 2017. Yields were comparatively high - as they often are after a gelée noire - but this is not short of presence or intensity. Scented and appealing, it has subtle wood spices and a core of pear and citrus fruit. Drinking Window 2020 - 2024.

Decanter | 93 DEC
Quite complex with grapefruit and a lemon-pith edge. Fine acidity runs linear and fresh on the palate. Mouthwatering and intense. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 92 JS
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes is showing very well, delivering an attractive bouquet of citrus blossom, orange oil, Anjou pear and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, it's incipiently textural, fine-boned and lively, with impressive tension and definition for this climat.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91 RP
(Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet "Chenevottes" 1er Cru White) Here the expressive nose is at once more elegant and more complex with its softly spicy essence of white orchard fruit that is lightly laced with herbal tea nuances. The bigger but also somewhat more refined medium-bodied flavors possess a sappy mouth feel, all wrapped in a delicious and well-balanced finish that offers good if not truly distinguished depth and persistence. (Drink starting 2023).

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
