Domaine Pierre Morey, Les Terres Blanches Meursault 2015
Such tension and finesses in this wine, Pierre Morey truely is a master of both vineyard and winery. A delicious core of mineral led orchard fruit is revealed once the attack of fine acidity loosens its initial grip. Beautifully intergrated spicy oak follows on the long elegant finish.
Pierre Morey is considered to be one of the finest winemakers in Burgundy, with a fine winemaking pedigree. His family's Burgundian heritage dates back to the sixteenth century, with every generation being involved in winemaking. Pierre himself started working in vineyards at the age of 10, alongside his father Auguste. Domaine Pierre Morey was established in 1971; Pierre has carefully managed it in parallel with his highly prized role as head winemaker at the iconic Domaine Leflaive. During his 20 years at Domaine Leflaive, which culminated in 2008, Pierre and Anne-Claude made huge advances in the use of biodynamism. Pierre turned his own vineyards organic in 1991, following organic practices until 1997. In 1998, the domaine became 100% biodynamic. The vineyard extends for 11 hectares, distributed in different areas located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and Meursault. Today, Pierre manages this renowned domaine alongside his daughter Anne. Maison Morey-Blanc was established in 1992 to complete the wine list offered by Domaine Pierre Morey.
