Tasting Notes:

"The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1Er Cru Caillerets, which comes from two parcels, has a much more austere, stony, reserved bouquet than the flattering 2014 Chassagne Virondot -- but still very pure and well defined. The palate is taut and poised with well judged acidity, tensile and focused, just a hint of nutmeg showing through on the finish. This is another fine 2014 from the domaine." WA

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.

Initial fermentation in temperature-controlled vats with a transfer midway through to barrel (30% new oak). Battonage once a week until malolactic fermentation begins.

The wine rests on the lees for eleven months and is then lightly fined then filtered before bottling.
