About This Producer


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.


Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
