The Pierre Morey Monthélie is supple and delicate with an elegant style. Blending of six vineyard sites produces a charming wine is soft and fruity. It is ready to drink now; balanced tannins allow this wine to reach its peak after five to eight years of aging.
Only 480 cases produced, and 125 cases imported.
Very bright, medium ruby hue. Prominent aromas of grilled, smoky black fruit with a pleasant tarry quality in the background. Sweet black and red fruit flavors accented by a grilled meat element. Herbal nuances blossom in the finish. Very complex.
Considered one of Burgundy’s most highly regarded winemakers, Pierre Morey’s small domaine of nearly 10 hectares (25 acres) produces stunning, long-lived wines. He served as winemaker/cellarmaster at Domaine Leflaive for nearly 20 years before stepping down in 2008 to concentrate on his family's domaine and his négociant firm, Morey-Blanc, both of which he runs with his daughter, Anne. Morey-Blanc complements his estate production with an enviable selection of premier and grand cru vineyards.
