Notes from The Source Imports:

"Pierre Morey is a living legend in Burgundy. He was the régisseur (winemaker and vineyard manager) for the famed Domaine Leflaive starting in 1988 and ending in July of 2008. During his time at this notorious estate, he converted both Domaine Leflaive and his own estate vineyards to biodynamic farming and winemaking starting in 1991 and officially recognized by 1997.  He is responsible for producing some of the greatest white wines in the history of Burgundy."

From Andy:

The estate is now firmly under the direction of Pierre's daughter, Anne. Like her father she believes deeply in biodynamics and the importance of farming in creating a terroir-driven wine. She speaks of wine in abstracts that make sense once you appreciate the deep complexity of these wines - they cannot be encapsulated by tasting notes. 

All of the Bourgogne Chardonnay vines of Domaine Pierre Morey are located within Meursault on deep soils of limestone and clay on four parcels, planted in the late 1970s. Fermented on fine lees in older oak barrels, and aged 18 months.
