The Morey family is renowned in France as true lovers of the variety and beauty of French wines. Vincent took over the domaine Chassagne-Montrachet from his father Bernard in 2006, and with his wife and partner Sophie, had their first harvest in 2007. Both come from generations of Burgundian winemakers, and treat their vineyards as if they were gardens. “Fine wines start with good grapes,” they declare in unison. Vincent is definite on the point: “Wine-making is like cooking: The basic ingredients have to be right.” In the vineyard, strict attention to detail is the order of the day. “There’s no secret. It’s a matter of devoting the necessary time to the job.”
Burgundy is of course among the most famous and storied wine regions in the world. Its history dates from the Roman era, and its system of dividing up vineyards into small, family-owned parcels makes understanding the wines of Burgundy a life-long pursuit for enthusiasts.
The cool, marginal climate and Jurassic limestone soils in Burgundy are perfect for the production of elegant, savory, and mineral-driven Chardonnay with plenty of acidity. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon.
The Vincent & Sophie Morey Bourgogne Chardonnay begins with a bouquet of delicate white flowers. Lemon zest with a powerful mid-palate is followed by an incredibly smooth finish, vanishing with the vibrancy of the minerality and acidity so renowned in Burgundy.
