Wine Critic Reviews for 2017 Marc Morey Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers

Another Marc Morey wine that's returning after a frost-induced break in 2016, this is a delicate, refined Chassagne from Sabine Mollard with fresh, white flower and blossom aromas, scented oak, some baking spice sweetness and a core of pithy, zesty acidity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025.

A steely edge to the pithy grapefruit and lemon aromas with stony and slightly flinty nuances. The palate has a very precise and fresh, taut feel. Great, succulent fruit with driving acidity. A lot of pleasure here. Super minerally. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 93 JS
One of the more youthfully accessible wines in the range is the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers, a pretty wine that opens in the glass with scents of honeyed pear, white flowers, orange oil and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and charming, with fine depth at the core and racy balancing acids, it concludes with a long and nicely defined finish. This is well worth seeking out.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RP
(Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet "Vergers" 1er Cru White) Post-bottling sulfur presently dominates the fruit so if you're going to try a bottle young I would suggest giving this a thorough aeration. Otherwise there is a relatively refined mouth feel to the attractively textured and vibrant middle weight flavors that deliver just a bit more depth on the clean, dry and balanced finale. This could use at least a year or two of bottle age to unwind and better absorb the sulfur. (Drink starting 2024).

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.
