Product Description:

Producer/Estate:
"Michel and Fabienne put the capital made from selling the juice back into the land and a newly purchased winery. The estate is a meticulously restored, early 18th century mansion with ancient cellars. It sits majestically at the top of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, backing onto the Clos St. Jean. Below the main home is the cellar: five stone-lined galleries built in the 16th century. The estate produces both red and white Chassagne-Montrachet with premier cru vineyard holdings in 'Les Caillerets,' 'La Romanee,' 'Les Chaumes,' for the whites and 'Clos St. Jean,' and 'Morgeot,' for the reds. 'Bourgogne' and 'Villages' in both blanc and rouge round out their holdings. The land is carefully farmed, avoiding pesticides, fertilizers and green pruning."

"Michel Morey prefers his white wines to have young and fresh aromas and bottles them deliberately early, at about 11 months. Fermentation begins in tank and then the wine is aged in French Allier oak barrels, about a third of which are new. The wines are elegant and full flavored with distinctive mineral undertones and a prominent acidity to balance the fruit." - Importer
