Domaine Morey-Coffinet 2020

Domaine Morey-Coffinet 2020

Thibault Morey described the 2020 vintage as “relatively easy” with no complications or illness in the vines for the growing season, even if he admitted that some of his vines did suffer from lack of water in the drought and heat that had prevailed through the summer months. He picked a little earlier than usual but is extremely happy with the resultant wines. He is one of an increasing number of white winemakers in the region to be using larger barrels (350 litres in place of the traditional 228 litre barrels) as well as concrete eggs, which, combined with his biodynamic approach, is certainly leading to wines of incredible purity, restraint and harmony. We are very pleased to continue representing his wines in the UK. These are wines of sublime focus and energy.

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Houillières, Domaine Morey-Coffinet

£225 per 6 bottle case in bond

Fresh ripe citrus palate. Lovely energy and balance. Fresh orange cream touch then a pithy grip and length. There is a leaner touch late on the palate, a tension, which gives energy and drive to the freshly ripe fruit. Drink 2023-2028

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru, Les Caillerets, Domaine Morey-Coffinet

£310 per 6 bottle case in bond

This is all about poise and balance. Pure, clean, crystalline fruit. Good ripeness but nothing overblown. This is marked by a wonderful freshness and very gentle grip that holds the wine in taut balance. Nothing austere though. Subtle energy all the way through.  Drink 2025-2032

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru, La Romanée, Domaine Morey-Coffinet

£330 per 6 bottle case in bond

Beautiful balance here between the tension and energy now typical at Morey-Coffinet and the breadth of fruit that characterises Chassagne. Pure, clean, ripe peach and nectarine fruit with vibrant citrus underpinning. There is an overall sense of harmony here that is compelling. Drink 2024-2032

2020 Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru, Les Combettes, Maison Morey-Coffinet SOLD OUT

£435 per 6 bottle case in bond

Deeper, broader fruit here on the nose with a similar palate weight and richness across the palate. There is also a spicy touch of cinnamon and clove bringing both complexity and lift to the finish. While there is ripeness and depth here, there is also a long fresh citrus-laden persistence. Drink 2025-2035

2020 Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru, Les Pucelles, Domaine Morey-Coffinet SOLD OUT

£460 per 6 bottle case in bond

Restrained, tightly focused nose. White flower, white stone, white peach. Really juicy fruit on the palate – ‘gourmand’, mouth-watering. Fresh lemon and lime fruit length. Mineral power encased by fruit. Tension, energy, precision but always harmony too. Drink 2025-2035

2020 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Morey-Coffinet SOLD OUT

£690 per 3 bottle case in bond

Only two 350 litre barrels were made in 2020, one new, one from 2018. This tasting note from the older barrel. The fruit shows a seamless, silky quality with subtle citrus and ripe white stone fruit, gently mouth-filling. There is wonderful ripe fruit weight through the palate to the long finish that is charged with mineral energy and shows incredible persistence. Drink 2025-2040
