Collection: Domaine Spotlight: Pierre Morin

The sleepy village of Bué is home to some of the Sancerre region's finest terroirs. It's also home to Gerard and Pierre Morin, a passionate father-son duo who have been modestly producing top-notch wines for decades.

Peter Weygandt began importing Gerard Morin's wines 25 years ago. Now, Pierre is the principal winemaker, though his father's passion means you can still find him lending a hand with the vines and in the cellar.

The wines have only become better over this decades long relationship.

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre Rosé 2019
    $25.00
    Rosé wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The 2019 Sancerre Rosé from Pierre Morin is a very pretty example of this vintage, with the concentration of this summer quite evident in the aromatic depth of the bouquet here, which delivers scents of strawberries, orange peel, rhubarb, limestone minerality and a bit of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with excellent mineral drive and cut, fine balance and a long, complex and quite seriously structured finish. This is an excellent Sancerre Rosé that will age quite nicely. 2020-2028." — 90 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre Chene Marchand 2018
    $28.00

    White wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The Chêne Marchand is from the eponymous lieu-dit in Bué and opens with a deep bouquet of citrus fruit, elderflower, jasmine and a hint of black currant. Full-bodied, very mineral and complex on the palate, this is a pure and lovely, yet densely woven and concentrated Sancerre; it has nutty flavors, a lot of salt and crushed (lime-) stones, as well as a very tight and persistent, refreshing finish.

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre Cuvee Ovide 2017
    $30.00
    White wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "The Ovide bottling from Pierre Morin is one of his old vine cuvées, as these vines were planted in 1950. They hail from the lieu à dit of Les Caillottes in Bué and the wine is fermented and raised in stainless steel and bottled without filtration. The 2017 Ovide delivers a very refined aromatic constellation of gooseberry, lime, orange blossoms, a touch of grassiness and a lovely base of chalky minerality. On the palate the wine is bright, zesty and full-bodied, with fine focus and mid-palate depth, a lovely girdled of acidity and a long, complex and bouncy finish. This should age very nicely, and though it is already quite delicious at three years of age, it should have no difficulties keeping through the next half dozen years or more. Fine juice. 2020-2027." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre Rouge 2017
    $26.00
    Red wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "Pierre Morin makes his Sancerre rouge bottling using whole clusters and raises the wine half in older casks and half in stainless steel tanks. It is made from a parcel of thirty-five year-old pinot noir vines planted on a combination of terres blanches and caillottes. The 2027 version is quite lovely, offering up an impressively complex bouquet of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, raw cocoa, gamebird, chalky soil tones, a nice touch of cedar and just a whisper of fresh herb tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows fine depth at the core, with good soil signature, ripe, fairly firm tannins, good focus and grip and a long, complex and quite promising finish. This is quite a refined example of Sancerre rouge, but it is still on the young side and needs a few years’ worth of bottle age to really start to hit on all cylinders. 2024-2045+." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre Chant de L'Orme 2016
    $31.00
    White wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "Pierre Morin’s bottling of le Chant de l’Orme is made from a vineyard parcel of fifty year-old vines, with seventy percent of the cuvée barrel- fermented and raised in older casks, and the other thirty percent in stainless steel. The 2016 version is excellent and really starting to hit its plateau, offering up a complex nose of lime, tangerine, gooseberry, chalky minerality, damp grass and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very mineral on the backend, with a fine core, bright acids and very good length and grip on the complex and very nicely balanced finish. There is a textural element on the backend here from the percentage of the blend that has been barrel- fermented, but not aromatic or flavor influence. I like this quite well- particularly for the more challenging 2016 vintage! 2020-2026." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre 'Bellechaume Rouge' 2015
    $30.00

    Red wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. A great example of Pinot Noir from these chalky soils, offering a nose of cherries, coffee, and herb tones. On the palate, it's deep and classy, focused and well-structured, with a bit of tannin to resolve on the long, balanced finish. Already delicious, this should age quite well.
