Vintage summary: 2008 and 2007 White Burgundy

“Morey’s 2008s-especially the wines in his colder Morey-Blanc cellar-had only recently begun their malolactic fermentations so I will have to wait until next year to provide notes. He described 2008 as a tricky vintage that required a lot of selection. But he’s clearly high on 2007, which he says ‘combines the abundance and minerally acidity of 2004 and the warmer style of 1999.” The fruit in 2007 benefitted from being picked earlier, when the days were still long,’ he went on. ‘They remind me a bit of the 1996s in the way they combine good sugar and good acidity, but there’s less gras in the 2007s.’ The 2007s at both the domain and at Morey-Blanc were mostly bottled in March of 2009. This was yet another set of wines that was more impressive in bottle than in barrel.”
