The last-picked wine of the vintage Thomas Morey's 2007 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Dents De Chien smells of heliotrope decadent lily narcissus pink grapefruit and white peach without question revealing its family resemblance to the great Montrachet which lies down a rather steep slope from here. This is rich and silken yet refreshing and invigorating in its interchange of diverse mineral and citrus elements leading to a buoyant persistent finish as thought-provoking in its subtlety as it is seductive in its liquid flowers citrus cream and spices. I would expect this to reward at least a half dozen years' cellaring. -David Schildknecht Following the division of Bernard Morey's domaine between his two sons Thomas Morey has set up facilities opposite his home in Chassagne and will supplement his 8.5 hectare acreage with contracts. A report on the inaugural vintage of his brother Vincent is also included in this report. There is an attractive tasting room but Morey describes the cellar as just big enough provided he racks the young wines out of the barrel and assembles them in tank before the next vintage is harvested.

Sweet fat and full with lovely orange and pineapple fruit complicated by scallop and oyster shell minerality. The broad long finish shows a stony quality. This was from fruit picked at the end of the harvest yet manages to maintain lovely purity. 89-92 points
