Domaine Thomas Morey Bourgogne Blanc 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

From 2 parcels near the town of Chassagne. The younger of the two is a gently sloped climat planted in 2004 and called "Pierres" because of its stony soils. The older goes back to 1989 and is a flatter site planted with cuttings from the oldest vines of the domaine and consisting of brown, clay-rich soils. Thomas Morey is a tenth-generation vigneron in Chassagne-Montrachet. Morey mainly bottles Chassagne from 8 different crus, plus small amounts of St. Aubin; grand cru Bâtard ; a red Chassagne St. Jean; Puligny 1er Cru Truffières; and Santenay and Maranges reds. Annual production is around 5000 cases. The estate is certified organic. Most of the vines were planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The cellar work is traditional Burgundian: fermentation happens with indigenous yeasts in a combination of neutral barrel and tank. Whites go through malolactic fermentation and are kept on their lees without bâtonnage in barrel. Sulfur is used judiciously in small applications over the aging of the wine. New oak usage is no more than 20%.
