Origin: Chassagne Montrachet / Burgundy / France
The Morey family's history in Chassagne-Montrachet dates back to the 17th century, and they have been making wine for more than a century. Thomas Morey belongs to the tenth generation and, growing up, he helped his grand-parents in the vineyards and later worked for 12 years with his parents. Then, in 2006, he decided to set up his own domaine together with his wife Sylvie and their first vintage was 2007.
At barely 2.5 ha, the 1er cru vineyard La Truffière is Puligny-Montrachet's smallest, located just next door to the hamlet of Blagny. The plot owes its name to the Burgundy truffle which graced the table of French kings until, in the reign of Francis I, it yielded pride of place to the Périgord truffle. The old truffle beds, though no longer exploited, still underlie the vines.
Thomas Morey's wines comes from two parcels of vines planted in 1952 and 1986, which produce concentrated and excellent wines.
