Pinot Noir * 75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France

"When Vincent Morey’s father Bernard retired, he split his domaine between his two sons, as per the Napoleonic law of succession that’s a feature of Burgundy domaines. One of the parcels that Vincent inherited was in Les Hâtes vineyard in Santenay. Whilst this is a humble “lieu dit” vineyard (it’s not a 1er cru), this is still a rather special vineyard, where the vines are all decidedly venerable – some 60+ years old. This helps to produce a consistency and extra level of ripeness in the resulting wine, and a wine that can easily rival 1er cru wines at its best. The beauty, of course, is that the wine does not cost quite as much as a 1er cru, and is a rare example of 'good value Burgundy' and a wonderfully full-flavoured Pinot Noir from the southern end of Burgundy’s Côte d’Or." Rob MacCulloch MW
