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....
Classic ruby color. Bright red berry fruit aromas enjoy added breadth in the form of violet, lilac, pepper and earth nuances. The mouthfeel of the slightly richer flavors possess better precision and a subtle minerality that adds a sense of lift to the moderately firmer finale. This could also be popped and poured young or aged for a few years first. Drink through 2026+.

The 2021 Santenay Comme 1er Cru, located on the Chassagne boundary, has an open-knit cranberry and tomato vines-scented bouquet that is well-defined and transparent. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly coarse tannins, pretty red fruit laced with pepper and a lively simple finish. Fine. Drink 2024-2030.
