The Morgeot terroir owes its name to a hamlet which abuts Chassagne-Montrachet to the south.
A large number of lieux-dits (named sites) can be grouped under the Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot appellation which covers close to 148 acres.
The second peculiarity of this climat (vineyard) is that it is planted with both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The white wines have almond (green or roasted depending on the age of the wine), ripe apple, white flower and honey aromas and develop plenty of body and fat with ageing.
Morgeot is the best known of the terroirs in Chassagne-Montrachet. Olivier Leflaive owns 2.5 acres situated around the Abbey of Morgeot.
Area under vine : 144 acres (58.2 ha)
