• Domaine: Olivier Morin

Olivier Morin's family has been living on the same parcel of land since at least 1650 (the records do not go back any farther). He and his brother Christian have been working together since 1992. One quarter of the domaine is planted in Aligoté, one quarter in Pinot Noir, and the other half in Chardonnay. Chitry is located next to the village of Saint-Bris, right near Chablis. This location allows Morin's Bourgogne Blanc Chitry to gain their complexity from the kimmerigian soils of the region, high in calcaire component, that also form the subsoil in most of Chablis. Nicknamed a "Baby Chablis", Olivier Morin's Bourgogne Blanc Chitry is fermented all in tank to preserve its freshness and purity. The resulting wines are clear, precise and mineral
Winemaker's Tasting Note : A wine with intense aromas of white flowers. The mouth is lively and elegant. Briny minerality. Great balance. A wine ready to drink now. Ideal tasting temperature 54°. We suggest carafing it just before serving.
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
