PRODUCER

Thomas Morey

Thomas Morey is a 10th-generation member of the Morey family of Chassagne, in Burgundy. He is the son of winemaker Bernard Morey, and his brother is Vincent Morey. In 2006 the domaine was split between the two brothers and Thomas now controls 23 acres mostly in Chassange-Montrachet, though there are also parcels in Maranges, Santenay, Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet and Beaune. The domaine produces red and white wines, though it is known mostly for its chardonnays, which include the Grand Cru Batard-Montrachet. There are several Premier Cru Chassagne-Montrachets, and white Premier Crus from Beaune and Saint-Aubin. Thomas Morey’s red wines include Premier Crus from Maranges, Santenay and Beaune. Thomas Morey's first release was the 2007 vintage.

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, La Truffiere

La Truffiere is a 7.2-acre acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Puligny-Montrachet appellation of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is up the slope and west of many of the appellation’s Premier Cru vineyards, and in fact wasn’t farmed as a vineyard until the mid-20th century, when the land was cleared of rocks and scrub. The elevation is 300 to 380 meters.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
