Thibault Morey- the scion of the Morey, Pillot and Coffinet families- continues their generations of painstaking care in the vineyards of the Côte de Beaune with unfiltered white Burgundies of undeniable class. "Throwback" vintages such as the shy-bearing 2021 offer the opportunity to taste Chardonnay in Saint-Aubin at the absolute peak of its potential; here, the top 1er Cru "Frionnes" (40-60 year-old vines) is begun in tank, then aged for 10 months in 228 and 350 L oak barrels, 30% new and 70% two-year-old barrels. The nutty, broad, almost Chassagne-like qualities of this wine are underpinned by a persistent and refreshing mineral core. With vintages such as the cool, balanced 2021 becoming a rarity, we suggest laying in more than you might think you'll need! Ecocert biodynamic.
