Vincent & Sophie Morey Bourgogne Blanc 2014
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.
This charming delicious Bourgogne Blanc is made from 4 parcels: one at Puligny, one at Chassagne, and two at Santenay. Very high pedigree for a reasonable price here. The oldest vines are almost 40 years of age, and the youngest are 12 years of age. Aged 50% in barrel, and 50% in stainless steel, look for notes of white orchard fruit and lemon zest. There is a lovely sense of energy to the citrusy middle weight flavors with nice depth and length on the attractively crisp finish.
