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. 

 

From the southern end of Meursault in ‘Perrièrres Dessous’, just next to Puligny-Montrachet. It is a small, stony Clos on the lower part of the slope, near to an old quarry. There is excellent sun exposure and protection from the wind. Fermented in barrel and aged for 16-20 months with some new wood.
