Domaine Morey-Coffinet, Chassagne Montrachet Blanc Les Houilleres 2017
The tiny vineyard of `La Romanee` rests on the higher slopes south of the hamlet of Chassagne. Its wines come across as quite rich and powerful, pale gold in colour, with gorgeous buttery, nutty notes on the nose and restrained oak spice. This wine is exceptionally complex and well balanced with a vein of acidity that contributes elegance and poise on a long finish.
An ideal partner for fish in cream sauces, fine charcuterie, duck or guinea fowl and roast belly pork.
The domain Michel Morey-Coffinet was founded thanks to the twinning of the vineyards of the domaine Marc Morey and the domaine Fernand Coffinet which have been renowned domaines of the village of Chassagne Montrachet.Covering 9 hectares, the domaine produces some 55,000 bottles a year across 14 different wines. Their cellars and house sits above the village of Chassagne Montrachet and dates back to 1820, with cellars created in the late 16th century. Traditional winemaking includes regular batonnage and filtering resulting in subtle, delicate wines.
