Caroline Morey, daughter of Jean-Marc Morey (from Chassagne-Montrachet) has inherited some fine vineyards from her father and 2014 was her first vintage as a winemaker. The wines are all vinified and elevaged in the same cellars as Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey – no surprise as they are husband and wife. Join us for a night of fine Chinese cuisine at the newly renovated Imperial Treasure Teochew with the presence of Caroline Morey to bring us through her wines.

4) 16 January (Mon) – Bernard Moreau Wine Dinner (with Alex and Martine Moreau)
Currently the brightest rising star to emerge in Chassagne-Montrachet, Alex Moreau (together with brother Benoit) has elevated this previously unknown Domaine to a whole new level. The Domaine produces some Grand Crus but those in the know will know that his Grandes-Ruchottes vineyard is the gem in the cellar. This is an extremely rare chance to taste a vertical of this legendary cuvee, often less than 4-5 barrels produced and in 2016 just 1 single barrel.
Wines featured:
2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cardeuse Rouge
2009 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Grandes-Ruchottes
2010 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Grandes-Ruchottes

Gevrey-Chambertin
