Winemaker's Notes:

Percentage Grape: 100% merlot<br/><br/>Soil: Clay and sandy soils which produce fruity wines with supple tannins<br/><br/>Growing Climate: Temperate maritime climate which produces wines which are elegantly balanced between concentrated ripe fruit and fresh acidity<br/><br/>Date of Harvest: as late as possible rarely before the 15th of October<br/><br/>Type of Harvest: Helped first and foremost by the quality of our special terroir and microclimate close to the Dordogne River, the attention to detail we take ensures we produce the best wine we can working in unison with nature. The way we grow and look after our vines with minimal spraying, the critical choice of the date of harvest (often passing through the vineyards several times to ensure optimum ripeness of each parcel), the rigorous selection of the grapes ensuring that only grapes that are perfectly ripe and in perfect condition come into the winery to begin the vinification process.<br/><br/>Vinification Length: Fermentation lasts about one week and the maceration between two and three weeks depending on the vintage<br/><br/>Vinification Method: Our wines are produced traditionally with great attention to detail during vinification with controlled temperature fermentation.

Pierre Morey:
The total area of the domaine is 11 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault. All the vineyards were cultivated following organic agricultural practices from 1992 to 1997, at the end of this period the domaine became 100% biodynamic.
