About

Rating:

“A mildly exotic array reflects notes of white orchard fruit laced with both white peach and barely perceptible viognier nuances that are also trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. There is good power and punch to the seductively textured middle weight plus flavors that coating the palate with sappy extract on the firm, serious and tightly wound finale. Much like the Corton-Charlemagne, this is more a Bâtard of refinement than muscle that should also age gracefully for years.”

Product Description:

"Son of the late Marc Morey, Michel Morey, and his wife, Fabienne (from the Pillot clan), began the Morey-Coffinet Domaine in the late 1970s with a dowry of vineyards bestowed on them by two families with extensive history in the region. With a stable foundation of 1er Crus from the southeast-facing hillside, the whites speak to the very essence of Chassagne, with fragrant aromas framed by powerful minerality. The reds capture the roasted, muscular aromas of Chassagne terroir and display silky texture and balance.

Michel’s son, Thibault, joined the business in the late 1990s, and the domaine’s wines have since reached new heights. Every week, father and son taste each cuvée together in an ancient cellar, exchanging opinions and sharing experiences. Shy, soft-spoken Thibault continues to push the quality of his domaine to a whole different level with his expressive, powerful, wonderfully hedonistic wines. Here in the Côte de Beaune, a transition, but not a revolution, is gently in progress." -Importer
