Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Grown on the hill above Montrachet, this is a vibrant young wine, tight and vinous, lasting in its almond and orange blossom scents. It handles its bold intensity with grace, driving forward with a sweetness to its intensity, mellowing the notes of celery salt and smoke. Potentially grand, this will reward a few years in the cellar.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Chenevottes has quite a broody bouquet after the Chassagne-Montrachet Villages, but there is presence here, almost Meursault-like in style with veins of smoked walnut. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry, a little "fatter" than the Village with that same keen thread of acidity, hints of tropical fruit surfacing just towards the finish. This is a very satisfying Chassagne-Montrachet, though one I would be tempted to broach earlier rather than later.
BH 91
In contrast to the expressiveness of the prior wines this is backward and brooding and only grudgingly displays notes of petrol, white flowers and discreet wood. By contrast there is plenty of energy to the bright and delicious medium weight flavors that possess both good richness and delineation while delivering fine length on the moderately complex finale. Note that my score offers the benefit of the doubt that more depth is in the offing with a few years of bottle age.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
White peach, apple, floral and spice flavors are wrapped around a chalky core in this white. Shows grip and intensity, leaving a lemony note on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2026. 500 cases made, 25 cases imported.

Domaine Marc Morey, France
Domaine Marc Morey was founded just after the first world war by Fernand Morey. The first vineyard holdings comprised just a couple of hectares in Chassagne-Montrachet. Marc Morey took over in 1944 following his father's death, when he quickly expanded the property. He started to bottle directly at the Domaine, and Marc Morey et Fils rapidly became a well respected name in the village. Marc's daughter Marie-Josephine and her husband Bernard joined the family business in 1977. Today, Marc's grand-daughter, Sabine Mollard, is in charge of the estate and has been the winemaker since 2003. The domaine's owns 9.5 hectares of vineyards in the Côte d'Or. Most of their vineyard sites are located in Chassagne-Montrachet. One hectare is planted to Pinot Noir and a small amount of Aligoté, while the majority of their plantings are Chardonnay. Domaine Marc Morey owns over 90% of the Premier Cru, En Virondot. Morey owns 2 hectares of En Virondot will leasing 0.1 from a nieghbor so they are the only producer for this vineyard. Sabine also owns smaller plots in the Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, as well as Premier Cru vines in St. Aubin and Puligny-Montrachet. Sabine practices the principles of lutte raisonée, or sustainable viticulture in all of her vineyards and is a firm believer of the concept that the best wines must start with great grapes. Domaine Marc Morey's cellars are located directly under the century-old family home right in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Vinification is flexible according to the vintage, with the wines resting on their lees for on average 10 months for the whites and 15 months for the reds in a maximum of 30% new oak barrels. Sabine prefers that the wines' portrayal of terroir to be as expressive as possible.

Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A Côte de Beaune village of Burgundy most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

There is some fine Pinot Noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
