Domaine Marc Morey & Fils Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru En Virondot Blanc 2019
- White Wine
The estate was founded after World War I, when Fernand Morey acquired a couple of hectares of Chassagne-Montrachet and a 19th-Century coaching inn at the heart of the village. His son Marc took over in 1944 and expanded the estate. Marc's granddaughter Sabine Mollard joined the family business in 2003, and has gradually taken over the winemaking. The vineyard parcels total 9.5 ha (23.5 acres) across 13 different appellations from Bourgogne Aligot? to B?tard-Montrachet. There are village-level Chassagne-Montrachets in red and white, and five different Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus, as well as one parcel in Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles, as well as vines in Saint-Aubin. The estate had been larger but, in the late 1970s, it was split between the children of Marc Morey, with one part becoming Domaine Morey-Coffinet.
