Domaine Marc Morey stands proudly as one of the top producers in Chassagne-Montrachet. After a century of steady growth, these elegant, long-lived wines are realizing their full potential under the leadership of Sabine Mollard. The domaine consists of 9.5 hectares, planted primarily with Chardonnay, as well as one hectare of Pinot Noir and .76 hectares of Aligoté. Most of the holdings are located in Chassagne, distributed among several village lieux-dits, five premier crus, and one grand cru
Spread out across the Cote de Beaune, the vineyards of Domaine Marc Morey & Fils consist of soils that see varying levels of clay and calcareous characteristics. Rigor and respect for the terroir are the keywords of the estate.
The vines are cut in simple guyot or cordon Royat and debudding is practiced for optimum yield. The soil is worked throughout the year. For several years, the estate located in Chassagne-Montrachet near Beaune has been allowed to enter into a zone of optimum struggle and treatments are positioned at the best times and only if they are absolutely necessary. Respect for the environment is an important element to consider.
The vinification is flexible and adapted to each vintage. Lees aging lasts 10 months for the white wines and 15 months for the red wines with 25 to 30% new barrels to allow a better expression of the soils. The filtrations are mild and depend on the clarity of the wines. The estate wines play the card of finesse, freshness, and minerality over opulence.
