Created in 2006, Domaine Thomas Morey belongs to the young guard of Burgundy wines. Born into an illustrious family of Chassagne-Montrachet winemakers, Thomas Morey has broken away from tradition. His wines are lightly oaked, marked by a balance of elegance and finesse. Domaine Thomas Morey is supported by a prestigious Côte de Beaune white wine, Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru. Its production also includes a fine collection of Premiers Crus, both red and white.
