Today I am very pleased to offer the wines from Domaine Marc Morey who I have been following for years now. Marc Morey is a highly regarded wine estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, known for its aromatic, richly textured, yet crisp Chardonnays. Compared to other producers, they are solid wines which represent good value, therefore my white wine of choice at home.
The estate was founded after World War I, when Fernand Morey acquired a couple of hectares of Chassagne-Montrachet and a 19th-Century coach inn at the heart of the village. His son Marc took over in 1944 and expanded the estate. In 2003 Marc’s granddaughter Sabine Mollard who Neal Martin calls “one of the unsung heroes in Chassagne-Montrachet” and “A very fine winemaker” took over to make the wine. She ardently follows the practice of ‘lutte raisonnée’ viticulture (minimal intervention) and crafts beautifully balanced wines with power and elegance.
The vineyard parcels total 9.5 ha (23.5 acres) across 13 different appellations from St Aubin to Bourgogne Aligoté to Bâtard-Montrachet. There are village-level Chassagne-Montrachets in red and white, and five different Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus, as well as one parcel in Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles.
2019 was another strong vintage for the Domaine but sadly, as with much of Burgundy, production was down between 30-50 % in volume due to early flowering followed by frosts in spring and a very hot summer.
With this in mind I am very pleased to offer 4 wines from 2019 Domaine Marc Morey including the small production Les Purcelles. Tasting notes from Neal Martin (Vinous Media)
Wines are offered En Primeur (Ex duty and VAT) and will be shipped from the Domaine in the Spring.
Offer as follows,
Cases 6 x 75cl, 2019 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne Montrachet En Virondot @ £255.00 per case.
92-94 points….” The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Virondot 1er Cru, one of the domaine’s strongest cuvées, was matured in 25% new oak. This is backward and a little broody at first, yet it is beautifully defined with its mineralité already tangible, those shallow soils on limestone can almost be smelled! The palate is very well balanced and packed full of energy, touches of sour lemon and orange rind, full of tension with a persistent finish. Just a fantastic Chassagne.”-Neal Martin Vinous.
Cases 6 x 75cl, 2019 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne Montrachet Les Chenevottes @ £250.00 per case.
92 points….”The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenevottes 1er Cru matured in 25% new oak and bottled in August. It has a well defined and energetic bouquet with plenty of yellow plum, red apple, touches of hazelnut and light orange blossom aromas. Like the domaine’s other 2019s, this is so pretty. The palate is very well balanced with orange rind and quince on the entry. Focused and almost “lilting” in quality, it gently fans out towards the finish. This is going to be very seductive.”-Neal Martin Vinous.
Cases 6 x 75cl, 2019 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers @ £250.00 per case.
92-94 points….”The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Vergers 1er Cru was not yet bottled and was taken from vat. Good intensity on the nose, a little more malic than the Chenevottes with a palpable Puligny-like steeliness. The palate is well balanced with impressive weight, good acidity and a welcome dab of lemongrass and ginger enlivens the finish. This has great potential.”-Neal Martin Vinous.
Cases 6 x 75cl, 2019 Domaine Marc Morey Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles @ £370.00 per case.
92-94 points….”The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles 1er Cru shows just a very small reduction on the nose, although it is clear there is plenty of green apple, pear and flinty notes underneath. The palate is much more expressive with Limoncello on the entry, traces of dried orange peel and stem ginger, fanning out with confidence towards the finish. This is a classy Les Pucelles.”-Neal Martin Vinous.
