Its terroir provides its strength and its exposure provides its freshness. At the start of the 1980's, a passion for the vine inspired Domaine Pellé to separately vinify our premier clos: les blanchais. We rightly believed that the complexity of the land is reflected in the wine…. These old vines deliver power and length in both the nose and on the palate. Citrus fruit and vegetal notes gently mingle with a subtle minerality without ever being too heavy or too exuberant. A bottle that only improves with age…

After studying at Beaune with work experience at Olivier Lamy (St Aubin) and with Benjamin Lauroux at the Clos des Epeneaux, Paul-Henry came back to Morogues. His first vintage was 2006. Then in 2007 he took over running the domaine, which already had a good reputation but Paul-Henry has taken quality to a new level. In 1981 Henry Pellé and his son Eric decided to produce their first single vineyard wine – Les Blanchais. This 2.7 hectare north-east facing parcel was planted in 1966 on marne-kimmeridgian with some flint. The hand-picked grapes are fermented and aged in a mix of various sizes of wood and stainless steel. Tasted in early February this had rich powerful fruit, especially ripe grapefruit with a long fresh finish. A lovely bottle in prospect! Drinking Window 2021 - 2032
