Caroline Morey is another emerging winemaker to watch. She comes from the well-known family. Daughter of Jean-Marc Morey and the wife of one and only Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey (PYCM).
Caroline is very talented, she worked for about 20 years with her father and inherited some vineyards to start her own domaine in 2014. All wines are exclusively from her own vineyards. She owns 7 ha with 60% of which is Chardonnay.
Her wine making style is quite different from her father and very close to one of PYCM. They both produce wines in ultra-modern Cuverie which they recently opened in Chassagne-Montrachet. Caroline’s philosophy for her whites is minimum intervention. She uses 350L barrels, but her whites see bit less oak than PYCM. Caroline preferres long lees aging and avoids batonnage.
She has shown rising interest in Pinot Noir and has greater holdings of this variety than her husband. Her style of reds is avoiding much extraction or deep tannins, looking more for finesse with elegant fruit and lighter structure. Using whole cluster vinification up to 40%. Medium.com
