There are many "lieux-dits" (or "named places") in the Morgeot appellation. Their wines may all be sold under their own names as long as the conditions of independent harvesting and vinification are met. If not, they are sold under the "Morgeot" name.
Jean Noel Gagnard handed his eponymous Domaine to his daughter Caroline Lestimé in 1989. She had studied business in Paris, before returning to the village to take over the reins of the family estate, and had to handle male chauvinism at its most rampant. Nonetheless, she has followed her own convictions, and enhanced (rather than diminished) the reputation of this fine producer. In the vineyard, she uses no fertilisers or herbicides, but has not taken hold of the biodynamic bible.- James Halliday
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte 1er Cru has a very seductive bouquet. Touches of candy floss, orange zest and French patisserie do not obscure the terroir expression. The palate is well balanced with a tangy, marmalade-tinged entry, one of the more saline expressions of the vintage. Fine definition on the quite strict finish. Excellent.

From a 0.48ha parcel within the larger umbrella appellation of Morgeot, this is, in some years, assembled into that bottling. Here it shines on its own, with lush, forward notes that have an edge of coconut to them. On the palate, the texture is open, silky and very pleasant - opulent, but not overdone. 30% new wood.

The whites are full-bodied, powerful, and fat, with aromas of almonds (green or toasted, depending on the age of the wine), ripe apples, white flowers, and honey, The finish is remarkably long.
The reds are deeply colored, full-bodied, and often quite fleshy, with classic aroma of cherry or kirsch and blackcurrant. Their firm structure is reminiscent of a wine from the Côte de Nuits.
