Pierre Morey – Meursault Les Tessons – 2015
Meursault ” Le Tessons” despite being classified as a “village” vineyard, is actually considered as a premier cru for the quality of the grapes and the strategic position on top of the hill. With stony soils rich in limestone this parcel produces Chardonnay with structure and long life. Planted 30 years old, with a very limited production of less than 4000 bottles, the wine was fermented and aged in barriques for about a year. Aromas of apple, white flower, butter, in the mouth acidic, gritty with a crisp and long finish. Harmonious!!!

Domaine Pierre Morey has pretty ancient and charming origins. Morey family is established in the village of Meursault since 1793 and every generation has a deep connection with vine and wine. Talking about the more contemporary history after years as sharecroppers on behalf of the famous and qualitative Comte Lafon, Morey family managed to buy some vineyard plots from them, while Pierre works as a consultant for great vignerons such as Domaine Leflaive. Finally in the 70’s, after years of experience, and with very qualitative pieces of vineyard in hand, Pierre saw the birth of his own Domaine. Only 10 hectares of vineyards located in the communes of Pommard, Monthelie, Puligny Montrachet and Meursault where they produce territorial, fine and complex wines among the best premier cru. Pierre’s philosophy has always been avant-garde, in fact he was one of the first ones to focus on organic farming, and then biodynamic since 1997 just to try to eliminate new plant diseases and to preserve the famous Burgundy snail, almost completely disappeared. Traditional wines, considered a point of reference when talking about Burgundy, where every single terroir is clearly perceived.
