Wine information

The Chardonnay comes from the 1er Cru site Le Puits in Saint-Aubin. Just 0.6 hectares are classified as Premier Cru there, an area twice as big above the Premier Cru is Village. There is an underground water source there that always supplies the vineyard with enough water. The vineyard was planted with a Sélection massale in 2000. Apart from Thomas Morey, only Dominique Derrain should really own a share of the (red) Le Puits. The vineyard faces southeast and is situated above the village of Saint-Aubin on a predominantly chalky, rather white soil with a fairly large amount of small pebbles. In 2002, the first wine was made. Thomas Morey recommends four years of bottle ageing. Fermentation is done with indigenous yeasts in a combination of neutral barrel and tank. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally and the wine remains on its lees without any bâtonnage. The new wood content is around 20 %. Sulphur is only added in the last six months in the barrel, and several times with minimal doses, so that the wine never exceeds 35 mg/l in total.

Thomas Moreys Saint-Aubin »Le Puits" shows itself elegant and fine. The Chardonnay offers an impressive amount of white fruit in 2019. The notes of yellow apple, pear and peach seem dipped in cream and crème, refined with a little pineapple and kumquat.


At first, the palate shows a fine melting, which is a combination of creamy notes and ripe pears, apples and peaches in combination with slightly exotic notes, as in the fragrance. But then, with air and time, more and more stone and minerality show up, the acidity becomes more lively and accompanies the fruit in a discreet way. This is a joy to drink and is on the silky elegant side of Morey's spectrum of wines.
