  • Burghound | Rating: 91

    A pungent and expressive nose of white flower and honeysuckle that is ripe but stops short of being exotic gives way to rich, full, powerful and relatively vibrant flavors that are not as concentrated as the best here but still, there is impressive depth and refinement on the backward finish. This is not a great Bƒtard but I have the sense that at 11 years of age now, the vines are beginning to produce better raw material and that in a few years, we'll start to see some terrific things from this wine.

    Ripe and powerful, here's a complex, concentrated white from a great vintage. Butter, vanilla cream, peach and mineral flavors mingle with the lush texture, while the acidity keeps it balanced and fresh. And fresh describes the finish, where mineral and toast notes linger. 68 cases made.

  • 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.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
