Morey has a plot at ‘Les Grandes Corvées’ Co-planted with Gamay and Pinot Noir. When old Gamay vines die, they are replaced with Pinot Noir. Both grapes are picked and fermented together. Aromatic and forward. Vibrant tension from the fresh acidity. A good find at this level.
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.
