Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Not flashy, but you get the sense that there's power in reserve. Peach, lemon and oak spice flavors ride a vibrant structure to a lengthy conclusion. Needs time to come together.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 17Very rich and full and fat, but with soft acidity. Still quite astringent on the finish. Good clean fruit. Should get there.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 11/18/2005
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Spicy, seductive and aristocratic and to my mind, this is consistently the best of Morey's 1ers. Classy and refined, exotic and expressive with rich, full-bodied yet precise, long and opulent flavors that culminate in a sappy, mouth coating, intense finish of exceptional duration. In short, this is naturally stylish with a really lovely inner mouth perfume.Issue: 3rd Quarter, 2004

The son of Marc Morey, Michel and his wife Fabienne (from the Pillot clan) began the Morey-Coffinet domaine in the late 1970s with a dowry of vineyards. With a stable foundation of Premier Crus from the south-east facing hillside which Clive Coates calls "the best section for white Chassagne," Michel's whites speak to the very essence of the region, with fragrant aromas of orchard blossoms, green apple, pears and spice all framed by powerful minerality. Michel also has a deft hand with Chassagne rouge. His reds capture the roasted, muscular aromas of Chassagne rouge terroir, but are framed by a silky texture and balance that many other examples of the village lack.
