There are several estates with the last name Morey in Chassagne and Domaine Marc Morey is one of the finest. My employer recently became the NJ distributor for the estate and I had the opportunity to taste through some of the 2007s. A few of the wines were bottled from purchased fruit, including the two cuvees from Rully. The basic bottling was good, but the premier cru Rabource was outstanding. The wine was richer than several of the Chassagne premier crus in the line-up and surprisingly complex.  The fruit was also purchased for the wine from the lieu-ditBlanchot-Dessous, not to be confused with the premier cru Blanchot-Dessus. Similar in style to wines from the grand cru Les Criots, which it borders, the Blanchot-Dessous is a delicate, pretty wine with white flowers on the nose.  The premier cru Morgeot is more powerful, but it lacks the complexity of either the Vergers or Chenevottes. Although another estate owns part of the vineyard, Morey is the only producer to bottle a cuvee from Virondot. Situated high up on the hill above Cailleret, the vineyard produces a powerful, richly flavored wine that has an intensely mineral finish. The estate also produces wines from the famous Puligny premier cru Pucelles and the grand cru Batard-Montrachet, but the Virondot is considered to be the signature wine in the portfolio.
