IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Les EmbrazéesThis climat which lies at the southern extremity of the Chassagne appellation adjoining the first Santenay vineyards is the most highly reputed of our domaine.

History
Completely abandoned after the phylloxera crisis, this vineyard was brought back into cultivation as part of a reorganisation carried out by my grandfather Albert Morey in the late fifties. The vines currently growing here were planted in 1961.

Terroir
This gently sloping hillside is of very stony red soil, rich in fossils, not very deep, and with underlying broken rock, poor in nutrients, which allows water to filter through. Stony soils like these are very warm as the stone captures and holds the sun's heat - hence the plot's name "Les Embrazées", which carries the sense of burning heat.

Tasting

The wines from this terroir are highly aromatic and already enjoyable in their first year. At this stage they have a fresh and delicate perfume of white flowers and white fruits which continues to evolve with time. Likeable and with good concentration, they are at their very best in their fifth year but can take longer ageing when the vintage is right.
