THE CASE FOR WINE

2022 SUMMER BURGUNDY OFFERING.

Domaine Morey Coffinet

Morey-Coffinet has become one of the most exciting producers to watch in the last 5 years.  Thibault Morey has been working biodynamically for a decade now (certified in 2017) and has increased the quality here intensely. It doesn’t get more Chassagne-Montrachet than this, the Domaine produces 14 different wines. Only one of them comes from vines outside the village. Domaine Morey-Coffinet goes back to 1978, when it was created from vineyards from two other Chassagne domaines – Domaine Marc Morey and Domaine Coffinet. The Domaine is now fully certified Biodynamic. the wines speak to the very essence of Chassagne, with fragrant aromas, wonderful oak integration and powerful minerality. It is hard to go wrong here.

2020 Chassagne Montrachet Les Chaumes 89 JM – $84.95

Aurélien Verdet

Aurélien’s father was one of the pioneers of the biodynamic/organic movement in Burgundy in the 60s and 70s.  Young Aurélien has taken over the domain and recently built a new winery in his Acrenant. All the wines are organically grown. Aurélien says nothing is done by rote.  Everything is done by feel, by taste, by intuition, by the phases of the moon and as the wines from each parcel and from each vintage demand.

Domaine Humbert Freres

The Humberts are typically among the earliest pickers in Gevrey-Chambertin, thanks in large part to their high percentage of old vines. The Brothers are the fourth generation of vignerons to tend this family estate. They took over the Domaine from their parents in 1989 and since then they have been quietly and steadily improving the quality of their wine. Today they produce wines which reflect their dedicated effort and experience of the past 30 vintages, the Humberts are known for precise and perfumed wines these are wines that draw comparisons to the likes of Méo-Camuzet, Lucien Le Moine, Domaine Faiveley and other top named producers.
