Domaine Thomas Morey

Established in his grandfather’s cellars in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet after Bernard, just like his father Albert before him, had divided his domaine between his two sons Thomas and Vincent. After years of working with his father, Thomas had his own winemaking signature, therefore since the 2007 vintage, incorporating most of the original Bernard Morey Domaine’s appellations. Thomas is often referred to as the more ‘modern’ of the two brothers – his style is high-tension, pure, clean and precise. His wines are finely-crafted but also hugely characterful and representative of their terroirs. Early picking, minimal new wood and bâtonnage – there is nothing out of the norm here as the wines are really tip-top year in and year out.
