2012 VINCENT MOREY SANTENAY
'PASSETEMPS' PREMIER CRU
[reg. $54.99]
$39.99 BTL./$479.88 CASE

About a month ago we ebrought some of this exclusive in and it was quite a hit. So much that several folks missed out, however we managed to secure a few more cases.
It is quite a thrill to be able to offer an almost 10-year-old French Pinot Noir at a terrific price and this wine is yummy right now. Vincent Morey is the son of famed Chassagne-Montrachet producer Bernard Morey. Several years back when Bernard retired, the Domaine was amicably split between his two sons, and the wines from both brothers’ respective Domaines have maintained their impeccable quality.

Located just south of the village and towards Chassagne-Montrachet, Morey’s vines in the Passetemps vineyard are from plantings in 1958 and 1995 and situated at 725 feet. Prominent raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, combined with earth and fluttering licorice notes play nicely off exotic spice and sous-bois tones. As the wine opens, it becomes more botanical with roses and mushroom notes. Vinous and very resolved in the mid-palate while maintaining a seamless texture that is extraordinarily lacy and silky. This is not Pinot Noir for those that like lollipop, sweet and obvious versions, rather this is for those who appreciate seriously complex, cerebrally detailed, elegant, and silky Burgundy. With the wine’s smoothness paired with its silky high tones pair this beauty with roasted chicken or pork dishes done with mushrooms (I have a great recipe for pork chops and ‘shrooms that is a superb match with this wine…email for a copy). This wine is drinking very well right now and will continue through 2028+.
