Basic Info

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 bestowed on the by two families with extensive history in Chassagne. With a stable foundation of Premier Crus from the south-east facing hillside which Clive Coates calls 'the best section for white Chassagne,' the whites speak to the very essence of Chassagne, with fragrant aromas of orchard blossoms, green apple, pears and spice all formed by powerful minerality. With his son Thibault joining Michel at the helm, the domaine's wines have reached new heights. ¶ With his fine and precise wines, Thibault pushes the notion of elegance of Burgundy great white wines to a whole different level. It's not surprising at all to hear that he defines the wines he produces are 'fine and elegant' without rusticity. Thibault has thus made his mark in the wine cellar. His father, who is also devoted to vinification, has nothing but faith in him as he passes the torch. Every week they taste each cuvée together; exchanging opinions and sharing experiences. A transition, but not a revolution, is gently in progress.
