Caroline Morey comes from a long line of vignerons based in the Cotes de Beaune and is also married to Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey. In 2014 Caroline took her share of some family vineyards from her father Jean-Marc and created her own domaine based in Chassagne-Montrachet, working out of brand new cellars built for Caroline and her husband.

For her first vintage in 2014 she had small holdings in Chassagne-Montrachet for both red and white together with small holdings in Santenay and Hautes Cotes de Beaune totaling just 2.4 hectares. With more vineyards added both from family and acquisitions in the last few years, the total is now 7 hectares in total for Caroline with roughly half for red and half for whites.

Other Reviews....
Once again there is plenty of citrus influence on the layered aromas of spiced pear, apple, white peach and just sliced fennel. The more refined and slightly more voluminous flavors possess a really lovely sense of underlying tension as well as an abundance of minerality on the lingering and balanced finale that isn't quite as dry or youthfully austere. Good stuff and worth considering. Drink 2029+.

The first to be picked and still 14.1%, though as this note demonstrates, this Caillerets can easily handle that degree of ripeness. There is more green in the colour blend this time. This starts discreetly, then builds brilliantly on the palate, the acidity is really well integrated, seamless and vibrant. Really delicious graceful wine with a light cream touch at the finish.
