Critic Reviews
92 points, Wine Spectator
"Pure and densely structured, delivering cherry, black currant, iron, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors.  Shows firm tannins underneath, along with a spicy aftertaste.  Offers fine balance and length.  Best from 2025 through 2040.  285 cases made, 100 cases imported."

“A fresher mix features notes of red and black raspberry, violet, earth and hints of anise and pepper. There is better vibrancy if not the same density to the finer middle weight flavors that possess a bracing salinity on the youthfully austere finale. This could use better depth, but more should reasonably develop if this is allowed a few years of keeping. 89/2026+”

About The Winery
Sophie and Vincent Morey both come from families of winegrowers in Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet respectively. After studies at Beaune's Lycée Viticole and work experience in St-Emilion in the Bordeaux region, Vincent rejoined the family domaine led by his father Bernard Morey in 1986. In the same year Sophie was vinifying her first vintage for the Ménager-Belland domaine in Santenay where she had inherited the tradition of winemaking from her mother. Finally, in 2006 Sophie and Vincent set up their own domaine and had their first harvest in 2007. Treating their vineyards as if they were gardens, Sophie and Vincent agree that fine wines start with good grapes, require attention to detail, and demand the winegrower and winemaker to be adaptable vintage after vintage.
