Thomas Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 2021 (6x75cl)Thomas Morey
“Glowing pale yellow with a primrose tint. The bouquet is full of energy, far from a heavy Morgeot. Plenty of weight across the palate, a mix of fruit, white, greengage and citrus, with pleasing length. Morgeot has provided 7 barrels this year, so easier to manage than the tiny cuvees. Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: October 2022.” – Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
About Thomas Morey
The Morey family has been growing grapes in Chassagne-Montrachet since the 17th century. Thomas founded his 13 hectare domaine in 2006 after his father’s vines (Bernard Morey et Fils) were split between him and his brother Vincent. Stylistically his wines are different from the rest of his family, utilising less new oak, picking earlier, and with a greater focus on purity and tension.
Thomas cultivates his plots organically (certified since 2017) and owns Chardonnay vines in the villages of Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, and Saint-Aubin. The whites see a traditional vinification with natural fermentation in 350-liter barrels (maximum 15% new). They are then aged on their fine lees for 16 to 18 months before bottling. They are excellent wines that display exceptional purity and finesse.
