2015 Pierre Morey-Blanc Monthelie (Normal Price $58)

Domaine Pierre MOREY cultivates several litlle plots in 6 lieux-dits distributed in the heart of the appellation and all around the village. Some plots have red soils, others are more chalky, with a lot of stones.
Blending of these vineyards (slope and gentle-slope) produces a charming wine which is soft in the mouth from its youth. In addition to the beautiful expression of red fruits, there is a good tannin balance, which suggests that these wines will taste best if aged from 5 to 8 years, in most vintages.

Critical Acclaim:

The 2015 Monthelie was a little muted on the nose when I tasted it from barrel. However, the palate is lovely with bright red berry fruit, orange sorbet and a fleshy, well-defined, joyous finish. This will be well worth looking out for once in bottle. 90 pt RP

The Morey family quietly produces some of the best Monthélie around. The parcel was purchased by Pierre Morey and Jean-François Coche in 1984 and divided between the two domaines. Lovely, pure, crunchy Pinot fruit leads into a supple, juicy wine with a lovely core of juicy fruit and chalky minerality. Drinking Window 2018 - 2033 90 pt D

Domaine Pierre Morey. Considered one of Burgundy’s most highly regarded winemakers, Pierre Morey’s small domaine of nearly 10 hectares (25 acres) produces stunning, long-lived wines. He served as winemaker/cellarmaster at Domaine Leflaive for nearly 20 years before stepping down in 2008 to concentrate on his family's domaine and his négociant firm, Morey-Blanc, both of which he runs with his daughter, Anne. Morey-Blanc complements his estate production with an enviable selection of premier and grand cru vineyards.
