2016 Marc Morey & Fils Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru En Virondot$89.99
Marc Morey is one of Chassagne-Montrachets Pioneers and best producers. These are very classic wines that are now made by his granddaughter Sabrine Mollard, who, like her grandfather, is an outstanding winemaker. The key to this Domaine is vineyard expression, and one of the gems of the lineup is Virondot from over 30-year-old vines producing a robust, mineral-driven wine. The Domaine owns over 90% of the vineyard and is currently the only producer to bottle a Virondot. The wines From Marc Morey are very vineyard driven, pure, expressive, and have great potential for aging. An address you can trust to make Classic White Burgundy from Chassagne-Montrachet, what is not to love!
Burghound 92 pts! There is enough post-bottling SO2 present to render the nose difficult to assess. More interesting are the even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are tightly coiled and unusually powerful, all wrapped in a sleek yet entirely serious finish that is impressively complex if still youthfully austere. Patience required.
