2009 Corton Charlemagne, Morey-Blanc 150CL
The Morey family has been working in the vineyard in Meursault since 1793. As his family's métayage contracts gradually expired in the late 1980s, Pierre Morey formed a small négociant company, Morey-Blanc ("Blanc" being his wife's maiden name), to compensate for the loss of these vineyards. Since French law requires that domaine and négociant wines cannot occupy the same caves, Pierre had to find separate premises for Morey-Blanc. His talented daughter, Anne, has become co-manager and winemaker of Morey-Blanc.
Over the years, the range of wines has expanded so that now Morey-Blanc represents many of the most renowned vineyards of the Côte d’Or, including Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Aloxe Corton, Meursault Charmes, and Saint-Aubin. Production remains small and highly selective, always from older vines and top quality growers.
