Pungent aromas of sulfur and matchstick mask the underlying fruit at present. Otherwise there is good richness to the round and caressing flavors that possess a juicy palate impression before concluding in a solidly complex and persistent finish that is just a bit more tightly wound. 88-91 points.

Caroline Morey, who is the wife and winemaking partner of Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey (director of Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey) and the daughter of Jean-Marc Morey, has founded her own domaine. She also had the opportunity to take over another Santenay-based domaine that, among other holdings, has a parcel of Criots-Bâtard, which will make for a lovely duo when her father's parcel of Bâtard joins the fold for the 2018 vintage. In round numbers, she now will be farming 7 ha. Morey noted that her 2017 reds were bottled in August 2018.
