Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange was created in 1959 with the marriage of Jacques Gagnard to Marie-Josèphe Delagrange.
The Premier Cru Morgeot was first planted to vines by the Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages. Gagnard-Delagrange’s grapes come from a small hill with shallow soils, just past the Morgeot Abbey. This parcel was a wedding present from Marie-Josèphe Delagrange’s parents when she married Jacques Gagnard. Only six barrels are produced.
Gagnard Delagrange Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 2017.
This top quality Premier Cru Morgeot is a wine of volume, richness, and texture with aromas and flavors of ripe yellow apple, peach, and lemon. The wine is aged in partial new Burgundian pièce, which brings notes of vanilla and toast. The wine is ready to drink now, but will continue to improve in the next 5 years. Pair it with roasted chicken or with a pasta with creamy sauce.
