- The village of Morey may still be in the shadow of its more famous neighbors, Chambolle and Gevrey, yet there are some real treasures to be discovered.
- Such a vineyard is the Premier Cru Clos Sorbé, whose Pinot Noir vines are planted right in the middle of the village, on a gentle slope facing East.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: When young, it is a perfect accompaniment to red meat, roasted or in sauces. Older, game and venison are particularly recommended. Tasted blind, Clos Sorbé is, more often than not, taken for one of its neighboring Grand Crus. Even if it does not belong to this highest ranking, there is no question that it amply deserves more recognition.
TASTING NOTES: “A beautiful, bright cherry color. The powerful nose displays aromas of red fruit and exotic wood. On the palate, the wine is deep and velvety, generous and elegant, with soft tannins. Long aftertaste reminiscent of cherries macerated in brandy. A wine to discover, deserving to be better known”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
