From vines located just below the village in Les Chenes and Les Chambres. Made with 20% whole bunch and bottled in November after 12 months ageing in barrel. Shows a very fresh and bright aspect with lifted aromatics hinting at cranberry. Fine tannins and bright crunchy fruit with more depth and stuffing than the above Santenay. Serious yet approachable. - Importer Note
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 has taken her share of some family vineyards from her father Jean-Marc and has created her own domaine based in Chassagne-Montrachet working out of brand new cellars built for Caroline and her husband Pierre-Yves.
For Caroline's first vintage in 2014 she has 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 being added in the next 2 years the total will rise to 4.5 hectares in total. Her family holdings were roughly half for red wines and half for white wines, so Caroline has always been very comfortable vinifying red wines and is clearly adept with whites as well.
Caroline's approach in the cellar shows a similar light touch as her husband using mostly 350 litre barrels with no more than 30% new and with no battonage for the white wines. For the red wines she adapts to each site and each vintage with no 'recipe' as such save to say that Caroline favours a little whole bunch when possible but never more than 50% which she considers too much. - Importer Note
