Caroline Morey hails from a family of well-know winemakers in Burgundy. In 2014 she took over some parcels of land from her father Jean-Marc Morey. Married to one of the most accomplished young winemakers of the region, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, her philosophy and approach is similar in style. Most of the barrels used are 350 L and the use of new oak is limited to 30%. Although whole bunch is becoming increasing popular, Caroline limits this to 50% as she feels it can be overwhelming.
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet is made from three parcels planted in the 1990’s and 1960’s. Purity, restraint and generosity are words used to describe this vintage. Caroline vilified and fermented each parcel of fruit separately before blending to ensure the perfect end result. Deep aromas with delicate complexity, showing cherry and cherry pith with animal notes. The palate is fleshy with subdued tannins and hints of bitter citrus on the finish.
Pairs well with grilled pork or tandoori-style chicken.
