A true great among winemakers, Pierre Morey, former winemaker at Domaine Leflaive, runs his own Domaine alongside his daughter aswell as the extremely successful négociant business, Morey Blanc. The wines, aged in deep cool cellars in Meursault are made in a very racy, incisive style that, while closed when young, open up into some the Burgundy’s more vital and expressive wines. The vineyards are run biodynamically and the wines are fermented in steel tank before ageing in a 20-40% new oak barriques.
Meursault is the largest commune in the Côte de Beaune (spanning over 370ha) producing predominantly white wines. There are no Grand Cru vineyards, but its Premier Crus can equal the best white wines in the Côte de Beaune. The finest vineyards are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, and Les Charmes. In addition Meursault has a plethora of other named vineyards that aren't Premier Cru but nonetheless show their own distinct characteristics and can offer excellent value, some of the best are Chevalières, Tessons, Clos de la Barre, Luchets, Narvaux, and Tillets. These are lower-lying than the Premiers Crus but are much more interesting than the villages wines of Puligny where the water table is higher. The low water-table is also the reason why some of the region's deepest cellars can be found in Meursault. The commune is big so the style and quality are varied. Generally speaking Meursault is known for its full body and, nutty, buttery character. The best examples have enough vitality and acidity to balance out the 'fat.'
