Complex aromas of lemon peel combined with orange, vanilla and just a hint of smokiness, lead to a full bodied texture and the citrus characters which are echoed on the palate. Abundant minerality and a fresh acidity keep the palate lively, followed by a clean finish with elegant, buttery elements.

Description

Complex aromas of lemon peel combined with orange, vanilla and just a hint of smokiness, lead to a full bodied texture and the citrus characters which are echoed on the palate. Abundant minerality and a fresh acidity keep the palate lively, followed by a clean finish with elegant, buttery elements. A delight with shellfish, especially pan-fried scallops or lobster.

The must began fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures and mid-fermentation it was then transferred into oak casks, 20% of which were new oak. Bâtonnage, or the stirring of the fine lees, took place until malolactic fermentation was complete, adding texture and complexity to the resulting wine. Having spent 10 months in barrel, the wine was then racked, fined and filtered, prior to being bottled.

The grapes are grown in the Premier Cru named vineyard of Le Charmois, of the Saint-Aubin appellation. Domaine Marc Morey’s philosophy puts great emphasis on working alongside nature, with rigorous debudding and green harvests to ensure that the vine's growth is perfectly balanced. The vineyards are farmed according to "La lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method and are planted in clay and limestone soils.

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.
