Winemaker Notes

A gorgeous white with vim and verve, cut from the cloth of Chablis but pushes even further, with a purity and silky texture that reminds of Chassagne-Montrachet. Irresistible! Aromas of white flowers, citrus rind, sea salt. Vibrant, energetic; great texture and persistence.

COMMENTARY: While I am not sure whether consumers understand the Bourgogne appellation and how it varies from producer to producer. While many of these wines in the marketplace are ordinary, the 2017 Olivier Morin Bourgogne Constance rises above the nose and shows the best attributes of this appellation. TASTING NOTES. This wine is bright, vibrant, and fresh. Its precise aromas and flavors of tart citrus and core fruits should pair it well with a dozen of freshly-shucked raw oysters.

Domaine Olivier Morin, France
Since 1992, when Olivier Morin left a life in the music industry to take over his family’s domaine in the medieval town of Chitry-le-Fort, essentially trading in his turntables for a tractor, Olivier has never looked back. Crucially, the vineyards of Chitry (she-TREE) share exactly the same chalky, Kimmeridgian soils as Chablis, just a few miles away. Olivier and his wife Nelly tend their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines according to organic practices, for character-rich wines that transcend this modest appellation with their resonant flavors and stunning complexity. What’s more, Morin Bourgogne Chitry offers outstanding value. Olivier Morin tends some 30 acres of land in the department of the Yonne, between Auxerre and Chablis. The medieval village of Chitry-le-Fort is the center of the small Bourgogne Chitry appellation, and just a stone’s throw from the village of Chablis. Indeed, here the soils are also identical to those in Chablis—Kimmeridgian and Portlandian limestone, very chalky and mineral-rich. The estate is not certified but adheres to organic farming practices, including fermenting on indigenous yeasts, planting natural herbs between vineyard rows to prevent erosion and using only organic fertilizer in the fields. The soil is plowed to encourage vine roots to dig deep into the region’s chalky soils; vines, on average, are 30 years old. Olivier’s cellar is located partially underground, allowing him to move juice and wine via gravity. Whites are fermented and aged in stainless steel tank; reds are aged mostly in older French oak barrels. Very little sulfur is added at any step in the winemaking process, and wines are bottled unfiltered.

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

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.
