Vincent, who physically resembles his father Bernard, took over the latter’s cellar near the Abbaye de Morgeot, and continues broadly in the same style. He is married to Sophie, from Santenay, whose family were the other principal owners, with the Moreys, of Chassagne premier cru Les Embrazées: did they meet while working in those vines? The combined domaine is now 20 hectares in total, although some grapes are still sold off in bulk, especially from their bigger holdings such as the aforesaid Embrazées.

Vincent Morey stirs the lees a little less than used to be the case, and maintains a fair proportion of new wood, though the oak is in harmony with the up-front ripe fruit which defines the style in this Morey cellar. This is an address which makes very pleasing wines for the medium term.


The flagship premier cru is Les Embrazées, especially since Vincent and Sophie’s marriage brought the two largest holdings together. It is usually a full, rich, ageworthy example with an intense mineral core. Approachable young but likely to be better with five years in bottle.

The Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes is made from various plots, mostly near the Puligny border or beneath La Maltroie, from vines ranging from 30- to 50-plus years old. This is a satisfyingly plump village Chassagne which should give the customer exactly what is wanted.
