Admittedly, Domaine Pierre Morey isn’t a new producer. They own plots in some of the most coveted vineyards of Meursault and Batard-Montrachet, and the family’s history is deeply intertwined with the more famous Lafons and Leflaives. They’re rightly famous for their white wines, but Pierre’s daughter Anne has brought renewed focus to their reds. The Monthelie Rouge is brilliantly terroir-driven, with a deep sense of iron-like minerality on the nose buffeted by blood orange and raspberry liqueur. Monthelie’s reputation is one of rusticity, and while there’s an animal bass note to this, it’s also beautifully elegant. The palate has all the mineral density and verve of a great Côtes de Beaune white, and its firm structure means it will do nicely over the next handful of years.
