About This Wine:

The son of Marc Morey, Michel and his wife Fabienne (from the Pillot clan) began the Morey-Coffinet Domaine in the late 1970s with a dowry of vineyards bestowed on them by two families with extensive history in Chassagne. With a stable foundation of Premier Crus from the south-east facing hillside which Clive Coates calls “the best section for white Chassagne,” Michel’s whites speak to the very essence of Chassagne, with fragrant aromas of orchard blossoms, green apple, pears and spice all framed by powerful minerality. Michel also has a deft hand with Chassagne rouge. His reds capture the roasted, muscular aromas of Chassagne rouge terroir, but are framed by a silky texture and balance that many other examples of the village lack.

2009 Red Burgundy
By Josh Raynolds of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 2009 red Burgundies are the wines most Americans thought they were getting when they paid through the nose to snag the much-hyped 2005s four years ago. After all, unless consumers had carefully read in-depth early reports on the 2005s in publications like this one—as opposed to making a Pavlovian response to raves about the vintage that began literally before the grapes were picked—they were likely to have assumed that a warm, sunny growing season had produced fleshy, fruity wines with great richness and sex appeal."

"Two thousand nine, on the other hand, is a splendid and alluring vintage from the get-go. These wines are more heterogeneous in style than the 2005s, and less powerfully structured as a rule, but the majority of wines from the top producers I visit every year should provide pleasure to their lucky owners pretty much throughout their lives in bottle."

"The vintage at its best. The young 2009s range dramatically in style and quality. The best are wonderfully silky, scented pinots, fully ripe but not roasted, with a rare level of fleshiness and compelling sweetness of fruit. I love their surprisingly fresh red fruit character. They will likely be delicious on release, but they also appear to possess the stuffing and phenolic ripeness for at least mid-term aging. The greatest among them have the concentration of phenolic material and balance to surprise with their longevity."

Best QPR of the Bugundies tasted March 5, 2011
Reviewer: Chris and Walter from Sunnyvale, CA  
Attended the Burgundy/Pinot Noir shoot-out on 3/5/2011.  My wife and I both thought that this was the best burgundy for the price in the lot.  Of course, there were better burdundies but they were considerably more expensive.  Of the California Pinot Noirs, we only liked the Loring "Gary's Vineyard" was the best.  My wife and I may be in the minority but we thought that the California Pinots had a lot of fruit but not complexity with the exception of the Loring.  Also, the Burgundies were too young but at least with considerable airing in the glass, you could tell that they were going to be outstanding.
