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....
Light ruby hue. This is also extremely pretty with similar aromas of red berries and an even broader array of floral nuances. Once again, there is just a bit more volume and mid-palate density to the lingering and balanced finish. This could use better depth but a few years of keeping should help to address that. Drink through 2026+.

The 2021 Chassagne-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru (Rouge) has a lovely bouquet with raspberry, cranberry and subtle mineral scents. Transparent like Morey's other reds. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fresh red fruit, quite piquant with a dash of black pepper on the finish. Fine, but needs a year or two in bottle. Drink 2025-2033.
