94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Obviously I have a soft spot for this beautiful bottling of Morgeot, as I wrote a feature on the Marquis de Laguiche bottling back in the spring. The 2017 version is flat out stunning and was one of the very best premier cru whites I tasted from the Côte de Beaune in November. The wine was still in cask in November and absolutely singing, as it delivers a beautiful aromatic constellation of pear, apple, orange zest, crème patissière, complex chalky soil elements, vanillin oak and a lovely floral topnote redolent of lemon blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and racy, with a great core of fruit, stellar soil signature, bright, zesty acids and laser-like focus on the very long, very pure and refined finish. Great juice. 2018-2045. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
94 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Tighter and better balanced than the Drouhins' Les Embazées premier cru in 2017, this is entirely sourced from the prestigious Laguiche holdings. It has a beautifully judged combination of leesy texture, aromatic spices and 30% new wood, finishing with bright, refreshing acidity. Drinking Window: 2020-2027. (Nov 2018)"
94 points James Suckling: "A very attractive, complex nose with a bright array of lemons and white peaches, as well as flinty and stony nuances. The palate delivers weight and freshness. Really attractive and lithe with a vibrant array of limes and young nectarines at the finish. Drink or hold. (2/12/19)"
92-94 points Fine Wine Review: "The nose here is stony and chalky. The mouth is medium-full with peach minerality, a hint of sucrosity, purity, freshness, roundness, length, and completeness. Harvested 2-7 September on three different occasions. (5/19/19)"
93 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Pale lemon yellow, a rather heady bouquet, ripe fruit and good oak, this has admirable tension on the palate as well as great weight. Morgeot always offers body while the skilled operators seem to be able to infuse energy through the middle. Tasted: November 2018."
