    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.

    A more complex and much more expressive nose freely offers up its combination of lemon grass, acacia blossom, mineral reduction and various white orchard fruit. The succulent, round and solidly concentrated flavors exude more evident minerality on the clean, dry and compact finale. This is potentially outstanding for a villages level Meursault and well-worth checking out. Drink 2026+.

    The 2018 Meursault Les Tessons reveals a lovely bouquet that mingles scents of citrus oil and green pear with hints of white flowers, blanched almonds and honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, textural but racy, it's beautifully seamless and complete, structured around lively acids and chalky dry extract.

    The 2018 Meursault Les Tessons comes from a single parcel close to Jean-Marc Roulot’s. It has a very pure and very Meursault bouquet with all the leitmotifs one expects: grilled walnut, touches of almond and a little passion fruit. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. A subtle spiciness defines that finish, which offers just the right amount of salinity. Superb. Drink 2022 - 2040.
