Morey Saint Denis is one of the smallest village appellation in the Côte de Nuits. Four Grands Crus are located in this village and among them Clos Saint Denis. The wines from Morey show characteristics and personalities which go between Gevrey-Chambertin (powerful) and Chambolle Musigny (elegant).
The Clos Saint Denis is a very old vineyard which used to belong to the church of Saint Denis from Vergy, founded in 1203 in the castle of Vergy. The vineyard is South-East oriented. The soil is made of clay and limestone together with iron and marls.
The harvest is manual in small crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The grapes are then carefully sorted by hand and then destemmed. The grapes are macerated in open wooden or stainless steel vats for 3 weeks to 4 weeks. The vats are punched twice a day during fermentation. Aging lasts about 18 months in the barrels of our cooperage, about a third of which are new.
