Pierre Morey became one of the most respected winemakers in Burgundy through the 1980's, and only enhanced his reputation further upon taking up the régisseur (general manager and head vigneron) role at Domaine Leflaive in 1988. All the while he ran his own domaine in Meursault with his daughter, Anne, beginning to work there too. When she was studying, Pierre sat Anne down and explained: “I can teach you a thing or two about making white wine, but I cannot with red so please pay extra attention in school to Pinot Noir!”. The proof is in the pudding, their red wines are now equally as first rate as their white wines. The wines of Domaine Pierre Morey are of the highest and most celebrated echelon in Burgundy. They have been farmed organically since 1993 and biodynamically since 1998. They are fine and structured yet ever so flavoursome. As the wines age they require air in the glass and tighten before your eyes.

Other Reviews....
An all but mute nose requires very aggressive swirling to liberate the aromas of pure apple and pear compote. The sleek, intense and delicious flavors are not especially dense but I very much like the texture of the lightly stony, clean and dry finale. This is quite backward at present but lovely. Drink 2024+.

The 2018 Meursault Village is the usual blend of three parcels from Pellands, Chaumes de Narvaux and Forge. It has a very intense bouquet for a Village, the honeysuckle and orange pith aromas storming from the glass. The palate is likewise intense and brimming with energy, and quite spicy in the mouth, with hints of stem ginger and pineapple. Long on the finish, this Village Cru punches above its weight. Drink 2022 - 2040.
