Sophie and Vincent Morey both come from families of wine-growers. They set up their own domaine in 2006 and had their first harvest in 2007. When Vincent's father, Bernard Morey, a leading personality in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, took his retirement, Vincent took over the a part of the holding. He already had twenty years of experience behind him. After studies at Beaune's Lycée Viticole and work-experience in St-Emilion in the Bordeaux region, Vincent rejoined the family domaine in 1986. In the same year Sophie was vinifying her first vintage for the Ménager-Belland domaine in Santenay. "In my family," Sophie declares with a smile, "the vines pass from mother to daughter." Vincent and Sophie Morey treat their vineyards as if they were gardens. “Fine wines start with good grapes,” they declare in unison.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, the 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets from Vincent & Sophie Morey has a very fine bouquet, with wonderful mineralité and tension, subtle and offering light yellow flower scents. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity, saline and lively with a tang of ginger toward the persistent finish. It lacks a little mineralité and loses some precision in the glass, perhaps just outflanked by its peers from Marc Colin and Blain-Gagnard.
