Morey-Coffinet 2016 PA winehog header
Tiny quantities, serious wines...
Excellent scores from winehog.org, Burghound and Bill Nanson
 
Last week I received tasting notes from Steen Ohman (winehog.org) for several of the 2016 releases from Morey Coffinet. Thibault Morey was awarded the Young Wine Maker of the Year in Burgundy a few years back and it appears Steen is now onto them as well!
 
He says "Morey-Coffinet a rising star! I have tasted a few 2016s from Thibault Morey - Domaine Morey-Coffinet - and they are tremendous wines. This is in my view one of the strong and rising stars of Chassagne-Montrachet - and even his negotiant wines are truly lovely. Keep an eye on Domaine Morey-Coffinet .. and get some while you can."
 
The domaine has some simply splendid vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet including two of the very best Premier Crus - La Romanee and En Cailleret, both located high on the hill.
 
Our 2016's are just about to leave France. We don't have a lot left but we do have some of winehog's highest reviewed wines.
 
We have small quantities still available at our Pre Arrival Discount of 15%. 

Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2016
Normally $729.00
Pre Arrival Price $619.00
5 bottles remaining

Morey-Coffinet Batard LabelFrom a .13 ha parcel of vines planted in 1996 and located on the Chassagne side that produced 1 barrel rather than 3 in 2016. That's just 300 bottles for the world!

Burghound: 
Here the beautifully fresh nose is attractively floral with its mix of white orchard fruit, especially white peach, and softly oaky aromas. There is outstanding size and weight to the broad-shouldered yet refined flavors that possess a succulent mid-palate that contrasts with the powerful and impressively long finish. This needs to develop better depth but the underlying material appears to be present such that my rating implicitly assumes it will.
93 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": From the Chassagne side, close to the only tree in the vineyard! One-third of a normal harvest here. One row of vines near the wall was fine, but the deeper into the vineyard you moved, the more frosted it became.
Freshness and a little salinity too. Hmm, fine intensity here - really a changing flavour, continuously evolving in the mouth. Some salinity and layers of flavour. Excellent wine...

Morey-Coffinet Pucelles_label
Burghound: 
An elegant and admirably pure nose displays liqueur-like aromas of pear, honeysuckle, citrus zest and a hint of spice. Here too the medium weight flavors possess a lovely mouth feel if not quite the same concentration and complexity on the balanced and harmonious finish. This is certainly very pretty and sophisticated but the La Romanée offers another dimension of depth. A Sweet Spot Wine. 91 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report":
 The nose starts wide, becomes, more floral, some salinity, slowly changing, and ever-more attractive. Hmm, really good volume in the mouth, changing, not the must focus, but there is discrete structure and always fine flavour of good intensity. Fine, elegant and beautiful, and with delicious waves of finishing flavour.

Pre Arrival Price $158.95

Morey-Coffinet Romanee Label
Steen Ohman Winehog.org:
The 2016 Chassagne La Romanée from Domaine Morey-Coffinet is a true wine of the vintage. The nose is crammed with yellow and intense fruit - presumably low yields due to the frost, and further concentrated by the old vines. A classic Chassagne - with plenty of power and intensity. On the palate intense and quite vibrant - with an intense and powerful expression. A wine that is showing it's low yield - and offering plenty of intensity and detail. 92-94 Points

Burghound: 
Post-bottling residual SO2 presently dominates the underlying fruit. There is a highly seductive mouth feel to the intensely stony, dense and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess outstanding complexity on the balanced and saline-infused finish. This is terrific. A Sweet Spot Wine. 93 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report":
 A faint oak spice with a vibration of reduction. Hmm, layers - and delicious layers of flavour at that. Mouth-watering gorgeous wine. Really super wine here!
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Cailleret 2016 
Normally $186.95
Pre Arrival Price $158.95

morey-coffiney Caillerets label
Steen Ohman Winehog.org:
The 2016 Chassagne Les Caillerets is a gorgeous wine - classic Caillerets in the best sense of the word. The nose offer cool and vibrant fruit - very airy and detailed with a fine hint of anise. On the palate vivid fruit, a detailed mineral backbone - effortless and refined. Love the vivacious spirit and feel .. Les Caillerets is a tremendous terroir in the hands of the best producers - like Ramonet and Thibault Morey. A very balanced and elegant 2016. 94 Points

Burghound: 
There is a whiff of reduction that shaves the top notes from the floral and citrus aromas. Otherwise there is once again fine concentration to the much more mineral-inflected and finer middle weight flavors that are shaped by both a tautly muscular mouth feel and lemon-tinged acidity on the balanced finale. A Sweet Spot Wine. 91 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report":
 A little higher toned, faint pepper spice. A brighter freshness, seemingly spiced, but layers of flavour, indeed sweetness of flavour. Delicious wine - perhaps I expect a little more density but this is super tasty...

Chassagne-Montrachet 2016 
Normally $122.95

Morey-Coffinet Chassagne Label
Burghound: not reviewed

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": This and Puligny Pucelles have been bottled.
Hmm, bright, almost spiced and saline nose with a classic herb. Wide, almost spicy Meursault style but with a different structure. Layers of fine Chassagne flavour. Delicious wine.
If you are a fan of the domaine you should not miss the 2016's.

Morey-Coffinet Corton label
Morey-Coffinet Corton ROUGE Grand Cru 2016
First ever vintage
7 bottles left

The historic first vintage of a new wine from Morey-Coffinet.

Steen Ohman Winehog.org:
The Corton 2016 from Thibault Morey is a true surprise and delight. Bought grapes - 50% new oak - Tasted blind .. and showing brilliantly I must say. The nose is brimming with juicy fruit - layers of rich red and dark fruits - quite floral - and brought forward by a deep earthy minerality. On the palate tremendous energy and depth - a quite substantial and very juicy Corton. This is drinking tremendously well - really enjoyed this. 93-94 Points

Burghound: Moderate amounts of floral elements can be found on the red and dark cherry aromas are cut with notes of the sauvage and earth. There is a wonderful texture to the velvety, sappy and muscular big-bodied flavors that possess notably better depth and persistence on the much more structured and youthfully austere finale. Good stuff if you have at least some patience. 2028+. 93 Points

pied du mont chauve demoiselles mood
Au Pied du Mont Chauve Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Demoiselles 2015
Just over a case left
"The tiny Puligny-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is both very rare and potentially of exceptional quality, so highly sought-after." Jasper Morris

Les Demoiselles is a 0.6 hectare white vineyard immediately to the right (north) of Montrachet. Here there are just three owners. Jasper Morris MW says "The tiny Puligny-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is both very rare and potentially of exceptional quality, so highly sought-after."

It is notably stony with a little more topsoil than Chevalier-Montrachet above. Indeed part of the vineyard owned by the powerful negociants Jadot and Latour was reclassified as Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru in the late 1930's (today, they still use the name Les Demoiselles on their labels).

The Au Pied du Mont Chauve vines were originally owned by Bernard Colin and were purchased by the Picard family (owner of Au Pied du Mont Chauve and Chateau Chassagne-Montrachet) in 2007. Their parcel is in the prime location at the south end, right alongside Montrachet.

The domaine has one custom made 350 litre barrel to hold their entire production. That's 466 bottles for the world! This really is a special vineyard, not unlike Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Dent de Chien, except even harder to find. The location, rarity and quality justifies its premium over other Premier Crus.
Darren Harris: Harvested early - 5 September. The 2015 is richer and more powerful on the nose than the 2014. The mid palate has higher glycerol and more texture. There is heaps of extract - Grand Cru weight. To be honest it doesn't remind me of any other Premier Cru - it has that pineapple character, which combined with multi layered complexity, immediately sends me 10 metres south to Montrachet. And more so than the higher acid 2014. The wine finishes long and fresh, surprisingly without oak influence (the domaine uses a specially made barrel for the vinification as the quantity produced is so small. It was not new in 2015). I was very impressed with all of the 2015 whites at this domaine but the wine that stands out, and even benefits from the character of the vintage, is Les Demoiselles.
