92Wine Spectator

A silky, elegant red, with pure cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. It has a very firm structure of tannins that belie its pretty fruit.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...coats the palate with oily layers of red and black cherries, boysenberries, notes of asphalt, and black raspberries. Wonderfully ripe, it has an expressive character, outstanding depth, and a long finish filled with sweet tannin.


Pierre Morey

Domaine Pierre Morey has an illustrious history in Burgundy. Pierre Morey himself descends from a family that has been making wine in Meursault since the 18th century. Pierre worked alongside his father and established his own domaine in 1971. He was also responsible for the metayage, or sharecropping agreement, his father had set up with Comtes Lafon and was the cellar master for Domaine Leflaive. Domaine Pierre Morey has 27 acres including a Grand Cru parcel in Batard-Montrachet. Its Premier Crus are in Meursault, Pommard and Volnay. Morey also started a small negociant called Morey-Blanc.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard, Les Grands Epenots

Les Grands Epenots is a 25-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Pommard, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is in the central part of the Pommard appellation, to the east of the village. There is a gentle slope to the vineyards in this part of Pommard, and the Burgundy expert Clive Coates notes that “the presence of pebbles in the soil ensures good drainage and contributes to the considerable elegance which you find in a good Epenots…” Because Pommard has no Grand Crus, its Premier Crus are especially noteworthy. Pommard is an appellation of red wine only.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
