2015 Morey-Coffinet Bourgogne Blanc

SKU #1283970 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A discreet application of wood can be found on the ripe aromas of pear, apple and straw. There is fine richness to the generous and unusually full-bodied flavors that offer fine persistence if only average depth. This succulent effort should drink well young.  (6/2017)

K&L Notes

About the producer from Wine Advocate: "You’ll find them on the southern side of Chassagne village not far from the likes of Ramonet and Guy Amiot, a rather imposing winery that overlooks the square. The domaine was born in 1978 by Fabienne Coffinet and Michel Morey, the son of Marc Morey, and now their son Thibault is at the helm of 8.5 hectares of vine: 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, predominantly in Chassagne-Montrachet. There is also a small negoçe operation established in 2013 under the label 'Maison Morey-Coffinet.' Thibault told me that they are commencing conversion to organic viticulture in 2015, having eschewed chemicals since 2005... When I asked him about the style he is pursuing, he told me that it is important for his wines to age, but also to be approachable... In fact, I preferred the commendable Bourgogne Chardonnay to any of the reds." (NM, 07/2015)

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.
