LUCIEN BELLAND-TREMEAU, CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET 1ER CRU 'LES EMBRAZÉES'

 

BURGUNDY, FRANCE 2019

 

 

The stunning Chassagne-Montrachet wines from Vincent & Sophie Morey have become recognized among Burgundy collectors for their alluring minerality and impeccable combination of lush, opulent texture and bright acidity. The wines, especially the Premier Cru and Vieilles Vignes, frequently collect high scores and poetic reviews; Jeb Dunnuck awarded their 2017 ‘Les Embrazées’ 95 points and called it “riveting.” Needless to say, when we had the opportunity to unveil the estate’s newest project to our customers, we didn’t need to think twice. Today’s 2019 Lucien Belland-Tremeau 1er Cru ‘Les Embrazées’ comes from one of the most celebrated vineyards within Chassagne-Montrachet—one taste of this wine, and you will understand why. For one week, you can collect this layered, complex beauty with special Concierge pricing up to 23% off!

 

After his experience working in Saint-Émilion, Vincent Morey rejoined his family estate in Chassagne-Montrachet in 1986. The same year, Sophie was completing her first vintage at Domaine Ménager-Belland in Santenay. In 2006, the pair established their own estate and the first harvest was completed in 2007; they have quickly attracted attention from both collectors and critics for their wines of unmistakable elegance—the V&S Morey portfolio spans the spectrum stylistically (and in terms of price point) but attention to detail is the common thread.

 

Revitalized by Albert Morey in the 1950s, ‘Les Embrazées’ has become one of their premier vineyard holdings within Chassagne-Montrachet. Located near the Baudines Premier Cru and the border of Santenay, the ‘Les Embrazées’ Chardonnay vines were planted between 1962 and 2000 in stony, shallow soils. The 2019 Lucien Belland-Tremeau 1er Cru 'Les Embrazées' that we’re offering today opens with notes of candied lemon, pineapple, crushed-stone minerality, and white flowers. It is beautifully mineral and aromatic and a true example of wine in balance: the soft texture combines seamlessly with a perfect raciness of acidity. Burgundy aficionados, don’t miss your opportunity to collect this gem with special pricing (available for one week only)!
