From the hill of Corton running south to the town of Beaune and Santenay at it`s tip, the Côte de Beaune represents the southern half of the vineyards of Côte d`Or. It is famous for its mix of Grand and Premier Cru white and red wines including Montrachet, Corton, Puligny, Pommard and Volnay.
The domain Michel Morey-Coffinet was founded thanks to the twinning of the vineyards of the domaine Marc Morey and the domaine Fernand Coffinet which have been renowned domaines of the village of Chassagne Montrachet.
Covering 9 hectares, the domaine produces some 55,000 bottles a year across 14 different wines. Their cellars and house sits above the village of Chassagne Montrachet and dates back to 1820, with cellars created in the late 16th century. Traditional winemaking includes regular batonnage and filtering resulting in subtle, delicate wines.
The walled Clos St-Jean vineyard has iron-oxide rich soils ideally suited to Pinot Noir producing a beautifully balanced red Burgundy with great finesse yet firm structure, and a surprisingly full and ripe palate. It is a soft and supple red wine retaining a pure red fruit character with a subtle hint of oak, aromas of black fruits and cherries and a long finish.
