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. Cool and pure aromas include those of red cherry, raspberry and soft earth scents. The delicious and vibrant lighter weight flavors possess a supple mid-palate before concluding in a clean and mildly austere finish. This is built on its fruit and should drink well shortly after release. Drink through 2024+.

The 2021 Santenay Village a blend of two vineyards, has a lovely, simple but effective nose of raspberry jam and wild strawberry (but mainly the former). The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannins, nicely structured, simple but honest. Drink 2024-2030.
