 Spotlighting on Domaine Jean-Marc Morey 
The Morey family is one of the most well-known in the Côte de Beaune. The family name can be traced back for more than five generations in the villages of Chassagne and Meursault, and today great wines are produced at both Domaine Pierre Morey and Domaine Jean-Marc Morey. Jean-Marc Morey (also the father-in-law of Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey who is one of Burgundy's most exciting young producers) began bottling wine under his own name in 1981 after his father Albert retired and divided up his domain between Jean-Marc and his brother Bernard. 
Jean-Marc Morey favors traditional vinification methods. He uses only wild yeast and ages both reds and whites on their lees to gain extra complexity. He also uses minimal oak intervention in order to retain the purity of the fruits. For Jean-Marc Morey oak is a necessary part of the “elevage”, but it is an element that should never overwhelm the fruit or the “terroir”. Their wines are classic in style and supremely terroir driven with perfect balanced, rich texture which displays honeysuckle and orange blossom aromas.
2012 Domaine Jean-Marc Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet Village
HKD $475.00
"Mild reduction pushes what appears to be ripe fruit to the background. There is both good vibrancy and detail to the nicely voluminous and solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess reasonably good complexity on the clean, dry and ever-so-mildly austere finish. This will need at least 2 years of bottle age to harmonize but drink well thereafter." - Allen Meadow

2010 Domaine Jean-Marc Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Caillerets
HKD $665.00
"A classic Caillerets nose of mineral reduction, pear, lime and floral notes gives way to strikingly intense, detailed and driving medium weight flavors that sit atop a firm base of stone while displays ample amounts of underlying tension. There is good power and the moderately firm acid spine both shapes and supports the explosively long and moderately austere finish. This should be terrific."

2010 Domaine Jean-Marc Morey, Batard Montrachet Grand Cru
HKD $1,900.00
"An overtly exotic yet extremely fresh nose of dried yellow orchard fruit, mango, papaya and pineapple slides seamlessly into powerful and almost painfully intense big-bodied flavors that completely stain the palate with dry extract. This could easily be top heavy yet there is excellent acid support such that the mouth feel is really very precise with an abundance of underlying tension that adds a real sense of vibrancy to the linear and explosive long finish. Despite the overt exoticism of the nose the finish is bone dry and this should live for years." - Allen Meadow
