Product Overview

The Morey family is an extensive one with deep roots in the village of Chassagne Montrachet. Jean-Marc Morey created his own domaine in 1981 upon the retirement of his father Albert, who, at that point, divided his estate between his two sons (Jean-Marc and Bernard, his brother). Albert Morey was one of the first in Chassagne to bottle his own wines, beginning that tradition in 1950. Drawing upon the rich experience he obtained while working with his father, Jean-Marc has developed a very personal style that reflects a deep commitment to the concept of "terroir" and eschews the facility and homogeneity that characterizes many "modern" renditions of Burgundy (both red and white).

International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 90
Palish yellow. Sexy aromas of dried pineapple and wet stone are very ripe but fresh. Thick and sweet, but with a sappy quality and firm underlying minerality to the flavors of pear, honey, clove and earth. A rather powerful, concentrated wine with persistent finishing flavors of apricot, honey and earth. Perhaps a bit heavy for this high-altitude wine, in the style of the vintage, but the wine's solid acidity keeps it fresh on the back. Mollard owns two hectares in Virondot, which he describes as "a commercial monopole," by which I assume he means that he's the only producer who sells a wine under this label.
