Sylvain Morey produces very good wines on the southern slopes of the Luberon. This white wine Odalisque mainly made with the Vermentino grape, complemented by Viognier and Clairette.This is a quintessentially Mediterranean Vermentino grape variety, retaining its acidity well even in relatively warm regions. It really demonstrates the talent of the winemaker, always in search for balance. The Vermentino shows flavours of green apple and lime, heightened by refreshing acidity, good richness and medium body. Odalisque spent some time ageing in 500l oak barrels. The wine’s crispness makes it a delicious accompaniment to fresh seafood.
While born and reared in Chassagne-Montrachet, Sylvain Morey made his first wines in the Luberon where he set up Bastide du Claux, in 2002. In 2014, he inherited four hectares in the Côte d’Or from his father and he established Domaine Sylvain Morey.
Both in the Luberon and Burgundy, Sylvain Morey produces wines of great depth and purity using technology judiciously to back up tradition.
