Côte de Nuits
Morey-Saint-Denis is located in the Côte de Nuits, between Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south. The surface area under vine for the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation is 64 ha (158 acres) for “Village” wines and 44 ha (109 acres) for Premier Crus.
The vineyards here produce almost exclusively Pinot Noir grapes. This appellation marks the transition between the masculine characteristics of Gevrey-Chambertin and the more feminine characteristics of Chambolle-Musigny.
The nose is redolent of wild cherry with smoky undertones and a slight hint of oak. The palate is balanced with beautiful minerality and notes of red fruit and liquorice. The finish is generous and deliciously fruity.
Enjoy this Morey-Saint-Denis with beef, lamb, poultry or rabbit.
