Region Morey-St-Denis

Sitting between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, this little appellation can sometimes get a little lost in between. Although, not because of their quality - the wines are a perfect bridge between Gevrey-Chambertin (for structure and tannins) and Chambolle-Musigny (with elegance and velvetiness).

The appellation contains 4 main Grand Crus (5 if you include a small portion of Bonnes Mares which it shares with Chambolle-Musigny) including the Clos de la Roche.

The wines of Morey-Saint-Denis join the soft delicacy of Chambolle, its neighbor to the south, with the power and structure of Gevrey Chambertin, to the north. They are rather deeply coloured, with a powerful bouquet of small red and black fruits (pin cherry, blackcurrant). The crus of Morey-Saint-Denis are more complex, with woodsy, spicy, and animal aromas. They are full bodied and fleshy, often with a very long finish.
