The Morey family history in Chassagne-Montrachet starts all the way back in 1643 with the arrival of Claude Morey who came to work in the vineyards or to make barrels. By the end of the 19th century the family had been given an opportunity to build their own business with vineyards of their own.
Thomas Morey belongs to the 10th generation of this Chassagne-family. He worked in the family vineyards until 2006 when he decided to build a business of his own together with his wife Sylvie. The first Domaine Thomas Moray vintage was launched in 2007.
The vineyards are from the 1950s and – 60s and are worked organically and in harmony with nature. Thomas only uses wild yeast and the white wines are allowed to rest on their lees until the bottling. He does not use sulphur during the bottling, but adds very small quantities over a six month period after the malolactic fermentation for optimum integration.
