Wine tips

  • Serving temperature 15-16°
  • The village of Morey-Saint-Denis can be found just to the south of Gevrey-Chambertin and produces wines that are predominantly red and which were not distinguished from its neighbours until the strict application of the Appellation Contrôlée laws in the 1930's. The wines, on the whole, show a greater depth and concentration than those of Gevrey-Chambertin and their tannins are less forthright. They tend to be rich with lashings of red and black fruit character.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The general impression for this wine was that it was still restrained on the nose but starting to show a lively pepper spice quality with a nod towards its future vegetal character. In the mouth the wine displayed great wood integration, tightly-knit tannins, hints of vanilla and more earthy character. This wine was slightly more prickly and has a lot of potential.

Press review
    • Morey Saint Denis 2014 - - April 2016 - 91/100

      An admirably fresh, pure and complex nose features mostly red pinot fruit, earth and violets. The energetic, detailed and attractively sleek medium weight flavors terminate in an agreeably clean and solidly persistent finish. This moderately firm effort could be approached young but it should also benefit from 6 to 8 years of cellar time. /2021+
