Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Baudines
Baudines occupies the extreme southwest corner of Chassagne-Montrachet, facing due southeast, well-exposed but sheltered at elevations ranging from 250-330 meters, among the highest in the appellation. It is bordered by forest on the hill above, the Santenay appellation to the south, and the Embrazées premier cru of Chassagne just to the east (where Morey has a small, old-vine holding). Morey has two Baudines parcels totalling just .43 hectare--one planted in 1973 and the other in 2002--on a slight slope with fairly deep, compact, clay-limestone soils without many stones. This cooler, high-altitude site yields lean, racy, mineral wines.
