Description

Thomas Morey’s roots in Burgundy run very deep: he is tenth-generation in Chassagne-Montrachet. Having split his famous father Bernard Morey’s estate with his brother Vincent Morey upon Bernard’s retirement in 2005, he and his wife Sylvie built a cellar and bottled their first vintage in 2007. From the producer: Our firm's Morgeot derives from two named plots: "Les Brussonnes" and "Les Fairendes". The first of these was planted in 1986 and is a recent acquisition which first was included in our cuvée of Morgeot in 2005. Half of the vines in "Les Fairendes" were planted in 1964 and the remainder in 1974. This property has been in our family for a long time and was owned by my great-grandfather at the beginning of the last century. This handsome portion of the Morgeot appellation produces excellent white wines - meaty, opulent, rich, unctuous and less mineral than those from "Ruchottes" or "Caillerets". These wines have real complexity. They are rich and well-balanced and need at least 5 to 7 years to reach their peak.
