We knew Pierre Morey during his two decades as Régisseur of Domaine Leflaive, from 1988 to 2008. He combined this high profile position with running the eponymous family domaine in Meursault.
We have long wanted to work with these fabulous wines and finally secured our first allocation in the 2017 vintage. This was swiftly followed by our appointment as exclusive UK agent from the 2018 vintage.
Pierre remains a constant presence here but it is now his daughter, Anne Morey, who runs the domaine and its associated négociant operation, Morey-Blanc. The latter is only distinguishable in that these vines are not owned by the family – handling and ageing are identical, taking place in the domaine’s cellars.
Winemaking is protective, with 100% destemming of the reds. The wines have an astonishing sense of purity and hit that sweet spot of fruit expression and terroir nuance.
