Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Les Sorbets"


Côte de Nuits


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Morey-Saint-Denis is located in the Côte de Nuits, between Gevrey-Chambertin to the north, and Chambolle-Musigny to the south. The vineyards cover a surface area of 230 acres including 100 acres of Premier Crus and almost exclusively produce red Pinot Noir wines. This appellation offers a combination of the masculine character of Gevrey-Chambertin and the feminine typicity of Chambolle-Musigny.
"Les Sorbets" is a Premier Cru located at an altitude of 250 metres. Its name refers to the rowan trees (sorbiers) that were once commonly found on this plot, prized for their orangey-red fruit, flowers and wood.


The intense nose is redolent of red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant, raspberry...) combined with a delicate touch of oak, which will evolve over time towards more complex scents (spices, forest undergrowth, leather...). Fleshy and full bodied on the palate, this wine offers pleasing structure that lends it perfect balance. The long finish is silky and deliciously fruity.
