This 9.5 hecatre estate was founded after the first world war by Fernand Morey, who began his career as a vigneron with a couple of hectares in Chassagne-Montrachet and purchased a 19th century coaching inn right in the centre of the village as a family home and winery. His son Marc took over in 1944 following his father’s death and he expanded the landholdings and introduced domaine bottling, establishing Marc Morey et Fils as a respected name in the village. 100 years on, the family is still based there and it is Marc’s daughter and her husband, Bernard Mollard, who run the estate with their daughter Sabine. During the 1990's Bernard oversaw a dramatic improvement in the wines and, following the modernisation and expansion of their winery in 2003, the domaine has continued to go from strength to strength. Sabine has assumed much of the winemaking responsibility in the past few years and has continued with her father’s preference for elegant, perfumed wines that have the ability to improve with age.
The domaine’s vineyards are spread across Chassagne, Puligny and St Aubin and viticulture is lutte raisonée. There is great attention to detail paid to their farming and Sabine has worked very closely with the Chambre d’Agriculture and other growers in the village (she is related to most of them!) in order to improve their methods. In the winery vinification is traditional, with a low-key batonnage regime and 11 months of elevage in a maximum of 30% new oak barrels. Yields have steadily decreased in recent years and the result has been richer, more concentrated wines that retain their perfume and delicacy. This is an impeccable source and Sabine has proved herself as one of the most talented young winemakers in the region.
