History

The Moreys are one of the major winemaking families in Chassagne-Montrachet, and French inheritance laws have led to a proliferation of different Morey domaines in the village. Domaine Marc Morey is now run by Bernard Mollard and his wife Marie-Jo, daughter of the eponymous Marc. This estate is perhaps less well-known than those of cousins Jean-Marc and Bernard, but it is quietly establishing a reputation as a fine source of elegant, expertly-made Chassagne. Vineyard holdings are impressively located in top 1er Cru vineyards, and the Marc Morey portfolio includes a racy, Puligny-styled 'En Virondot' as well as a richer, fatter 'Chenevottes'.

The cellars and office are located in the fine 19th century coaching inn that has been the family home for over a century now. Bernard Mollard has worked hard to raise the standards here, lowering yields and using more new oak. All the major critics now list this address as one of the rising stars of the appellation.

Vineyards

The domaine is housed in a 19th century coaching inn, at the top of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. The 1er Cru vineyard holdings include En Virondot, above Caillerets on the prime stretch of southeast facing slopes that extends south of the village; and Les Chenevottes, east-facing and situated just across the road from the Grand Cru Le Montrachet vineyard.

The bedrock is Bathonian limestone. Les Chenevottes has some clay and gravel mixed into the topsoil, en Virondot has a paler, chalky topsoil ideal for growing Chardonnay.

Winemaking

Yields have been lowered to well below 40 hl/ha, and the grapes are hand-harvested to allow selection. After pressing and some settling, the white musts are vinified in stainless steel, with temperature control. The young wines are then moved into oak barrels, where they undergo malolactic conversion and subsequent ageing. Each year, 25 to 30% of the barrels are new. bottling takes place in the September after harvest.

Wine Moments

Here you can see wine moments from tastingbook users.    or    to see wine moments from your world.

 Ley Lahuh / Wine Dealer, Pro (Colombia)  tasted  1 wines  from  Domaine Marc Morey & Fils . In a tasting of  11 wines 

Bouchard Le Montrachet 2009 / Bright yellow. Citrus oils, hazelnut and minerals on the precise nose. At once penetrating and powerful, with serious acidity and strong dry extract combining to give this wine a distinctly bracing quality today. An element of iodiney minerality accentuates the impression of youthful tightness. This infant needs a minimumof five years in the cellar.

 Christer Byklum , Wine Writer (Norway)  tasted  3 wines  from  Domaine Marc Morey & Fils . In a tasting of  111 wines 

2008 Blain-Gagnard Le Montrachet, tasted blind. It needed hours to open up, it started out quite yellow fruity with playful minerality below. After three hours it became far more nuanced, layers of citrus, minerals, apples, floral notes and the balance of this wine was out of this world. Minutes of aftertaste. I thought it was Domaine d’Auvenay Chevalier-Montrachet. 98p

2013 Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet / Pale lemon yellow. Lemons, vanilla, minerals, spices, some floral notes, brighter expression for Bâtard, lighter. Fresh acidity, fresh and fruity, apples and citrus with more subdued minerals beneath, detailed and long. 95p
