2007 Domaine Pierre Morey Meursault

SKU #1274198 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Editors' Choice* A wine that starts with ripe citrus flavors, then moves easily into soft richness as the spicy wood and sweet peach flavors come through strongly. The wood is dominant, but not excessive. Full, ripe and still young. (RV)  (7/2010)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Here the nose was relatively reduced and thus hard to evaluate though the middle weight flavors offer both fine precision and intensity, along with a racy, vibrant and mineral infused finish where a discreet note of citrus also surfaces.  (7/2009)

Jancis Robinson

 Arresting smoke, mineral and apple scent. Super brightness and length. Really great, delivers well for the money. 17.5/20 points (RH)  (2/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Combining as usual fruit from Les Chaumes de Narvaux, Les Pellans on the Puligny border, and a bit of Les Forges opposite Monthelie, Pierre Morey’s 2007 Meursault smells and tastes as if cut from the same lovely cloth as his Morey-Blanc Meursault, with mouth-watering, bright citrus playing against toasted nuts and grain, salt and stone. (DS)  (12/2009)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very pale color. Peach and citrus fruits on the musky nose, along with a suggestion of hazelnut and some smoky reduction. Round and ripe but fresh, with musky white peach and apricot flavors framed by firm acidity and solid underlying minerality Finishes with sneaky length and an invigorating quality. Excellent village wine. (ST)  (9/2009)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:


- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
