This branch of the Morey family has been around for quite some time (about 200 years of vineyard ownership), and certainly in the mix, as they were share croppers (métayage) for Comtes Lafon which means they farmed and bottled wines under their family name from shared vines owned by Comtes Lafon in the 1er Cru Meursault vineyards of 'Perrières', 'Charmes', and 'Genevrières', plus the Grand Cru of Montrachet. Pierre himself finished vineyard school in 1966 and worked alongside his father in all these famous vineyards. Then he started working at Leflaive in 1988 and became the winemaker for Anne Claude Leflaive from 1998-2008. Pierre's daughter Anne is now running the family domaine after working under him for a decade.
