Gérard Morin took over the family’s 1½ hectares of vineyard about twenty years ago and his son, Pierre has been gradually eased into the front line and now runs the show. More cosmopolitan, perhaps, than his father he spent time in Australia’s Adelaide Hills (where he saw nothing to make him revise any of his winemaking practices) and at Domaine Dujac. His time there reflects his enthusiasm for Pinot Noir and explains the wine’s typically intense style. Meanwhile the estate has grown to a more comfortable nine hectares. These consist of seven of Sauvignon Blanc and two of Pinot Noir planted on crus such as Les Châteaux and Crépon, amongst the finest and steepest of Bué.
Pale yellow-green colour, bright and clear, distinctive blackcurrant leaf and tomato stalk aromas. Firmly structured and richly aromatic, flavours of grapefruit, gooseberry and lime with a little flinty minerality, generous and fruity in character and with elegant acidity.
