Domaine Marc Morey et Fils

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "En Virondot"

    • Description :

      Marc Morey is the only domaine that farms and bottles the 2.1 hectares premier cru 'En Virondot'. The vineyard is at one of the highest elevations in the Chassagne-Montrachet at 350 meters lying just west of some notable premier cru vineyards; Les Caillerets, Les Fairendes, and Les Champ Gains. Beneath the shallow topsoil, the vineyard sits on a bed of calcareous (chalk) soil that imparts a specific minerality and texture to the wines. Sabine Mollard, owner, and winemaker says this vineyard has the greatest aging potential of all her premier cru bottlings.
      Initial fermentation is in temperature-controlled vats with a transfer midway through to barrel (30% new oak). Battonage once a week until malolactic fermentation begins. The wine rests on the lees for eleven months, 4 months stainless steel tank, and is then lightly fined then filtered before bottling.
