Thomas Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er “Embrazées” 2018
Embrazées is a premier cru in the Morgeot sector of Chassagne, a neighborhood known for its bold, round wines. This lush terroir combined with Morey’s precise style makes this cuvée extraordinary. The name Embrazées roughly translates to “aglow” or “aflame,” and the wine indeed glows with intensity and a smooth sophistication.
The 2018 Chassagne premier cru “Embrazées” is a notable step up in both intensity and depth. The nose is very expressive, showing plenty of ripe fruit. In the mouth there is a pleasant fleshiness and excellent depth of flavor. Jasper Morris thought it “really beautifully balanced on the palate with a sensual ripe fruit perfume,” awarding 91-94 points. It’s a strikingly good effort.
