91+ points, Vinous
“Bright, pale lemon-yellow. Pungent aromas of lemon zest, white peach and crushed stone. Displays lovely inner-mouth citrusy lift and definition, with spice and vibrant mineral accents. The savory, slowly mounting finish shows superb energy and a high pitch. This backward, youthfully tight wine needs time in bottle to expand.”

"Pale yellow. Ripe apple and peach aromas are complemented by an enticing floral element. Fruity and floral flavors convey a touch of sweetness that’s nicely buffered by a saline quality, not to mention slightly edgy acidity. This wine will no doubt benefit from four or five years of cellaring."

About The Winery
The history of the Morey family in Chassagne-Montrachet dates back to the middle of the 17th century. Claude Morey, a native of Paris l’Hôpital, a small commune of Saône-et-Loire lying some six miles from Chassagne-Montrachet, arrived in the village in 1643. He and his numerous descendants worked in the vineyards or as coopers. It wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that vine growing became their principal activity. Since then, generation has followed generation, acquiring by inheritance or purchase, plots of vineyards or fallow land and passing these on to their descendants. Today, the domaine has evolved considerably from what it was in the days of Thomas Morey’s grandparents. Thomas Morey belongs to the 10th generation of the Morey family. He grew up familiar with his grandparents’ holdings and then worked for 12 years on that of his parents. In 2006, he and his wife Sylvie decided to set up their own domaine together. Thus the Thomas Morey domaine put its name to its first vintage in 2007, crafting elegant, lively, mineral, rich, silky and appealing wines ever since.
