Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Golden fruit notes meet complex scents of cheese rind in this opulent Chassagne. For all its leesy richness, there’s plenty of structure to lift it, almost tannic in its radish-like bitterness, ready to take the place of a red wine with venison or lamb.
BH 90
Burghound.com
A well-layered if not particularly elegant array features notes of petrol, apple, pear and various floral nuances. There is outstanding richness and volume to the sappy and attractively textured medium weight plus flavors that deliver fine length and reasonably good depth on the inviting finish. This won't win any awards for refinement but it doesn't lack for volume and frank character.

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.

A Côte de Beaune village 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.
