DOMAINE VINCENT & SOPHIE MOREY CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET 1ER CRU LES EMBRAZEES 2020
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.
“Outer quote mark A deft application of wood frames even smokier aromas of acacia blossom, petrol and ripe pear. The middle weight flavors possess borderline painful intensity as well as more size and weight on the solidly persistent lemon-inflected finish. This could use better depth, and it’s not as refined, but this is still very pretty. Moreover, this wine is consistently one of the domaine’s best and the 2020 version should only add to that reputation. *Outstanding*” – Burghound
