Domaine Marc Morey was founded just after the first world war by Fernand Morey. The first vineyard holdings comprised just a couple of hectares in Chassagne-Montrachet. Marc Morey took over in 1944 following his father's death, when he quickly expanded the property. He started to bottle directly at the Domaine, and Marc Morey et Fils rapidly became a well respected name in the village. Marc's daughter Marie-Josephine and her husband Bernard joined the family business in 1977. Today, Marc's grand-daughter, Sabine Mollard, is in charge of the estate and has been the winemaker since 2003.

The growing season was so hot that I was afraid that we were going to make another 2009 but in the end, no. I chose to begin picking on the 2nd of September and brought in spotlessly clean fruit that possessed good but not really high potential alcohols of between 12.8 and 13.3%. Acidities though were variable and a few of them were on the low side so I touched them up, though the additions were so low that I'm not sure that it really made much difference.

Vinification is flexible according to the vintage, with the wines resting on their lees for on average 10 months for the whites and 15 months for the reds in a maximum of 30% new oak barrels.
