Santenay 'Les Hates', Vincent et Sophie Morey, Burgundy, France 2017
Regular price £32.60
Vincent et Sophie Morey
When Vincent and Sophie married, they combined their family estates to create a domaine totalling 20 hectares. Vincent is particularly keen on lees-stirring, though having noted that it takes about two weeks for the suspended lees to fall clear, he now does his bâtonnage once a fortnight instead of every week, as his father used to do. Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Embrazées is the domaine’s flagship premier cru, since Vincent and Sophie’s marriage brought the two largest holdings in the area together. It is a full, rich and ageworthy example with a wonderfully intense mineral core.
Santenay 'Les Hâtes' 2017
Silky, juicy Pinot, full of bright red berry and cherry fruit, with an accessible texture and lovely long finish.
