Domaine Marc Morey was established in 1919 by Ferand Morey and has been passed through the generations to his son Marc, to the current young and talented winemaker Sabine Mollard, the daugher of Bernard Mollard and his wife, who is Marc Morey’s daughter. The old cellar lies under their magnificent home, which was a former coaching inn and Marc Morey's family home for 100 years. Domaine Marc Morey's wines have become world renowned since the mid-nineties, producing some of the finest Chassagne Montrachets.
