Domaine Pierre Morey - Meursault Les Tessons 2016


During 20 years, from 1988 to the end of 2008,  Pierre Morey was the Cellar Master at Domaine Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet. During this period, he had been taking care of all the technical aspects (vines and cellars ) of Domaine Leflaive in addition to his own Domaine and his small negociant-eleveur activity.

From 1991, Pierre Morey started using organic agricultural principles along with some biodynamic practises, such as the addition of biodynamic preparations in his vineyards. The domaine became 100% biodynamic in 1997.

His daugther Anne Morey, has been working with him for the last few years and has been appointed co-manager.

The total area of the domaine is 10 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the wine villages of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault.

Just above the village of Meursault, in the medium slope, soil is very stony so it's a mineral wine. Les Tessons are at the same altitude than premiers crus. Fine and elegant, complex and "very Meursault style", Les Tessons can age for a long time because of its minerality.
