Burgundy Focus: Marc Morey 2017 whites ( Strand Street )
February 20 @ 18:30 - 20:00R495
WHITE BURGUNDY as expressed by Marc Morey. The Morey family is one of the most well-known in the Côte de Beaune. The family name can be traced back for more than five generations in the villages of Chassagne and Meursault. The old cellar of Domaine Marc Morey lies under a magnificent old house, formerly a coaching inn and the family home for 100 years. The winemaking is strictly traditional – the vineyards are hand-picked and hand sorted; fermentation takes place using ambient natural yeasts, and the wines receive extended ageing on the lees and regular battonage. The wines are classic in style and supremely terroir driven – full of the honeysuckle and orange blossom aromas that Burgundy zealots crave, while balancing rich texture and bracing acidity. These whites are statuesque, powerful wines capable of very considerable age. Taste six superb wines: Rully Blanc 2017; St Aubin 1er Cru Charmois 2017; Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers 2017; Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Virondot 2017; Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets 2017 and Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts 2017.
