Description
  • 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
    Our Morey-Saint-Denis reveals a nice ruby red colour. The nose is seducing and evokes of blackcurrant and spice, such as vanilla. On the palate, a very pleasant sensation of freshness and a beautiful roundness with silky tannins. A persistant length.

      Selected as "Top Value" Wine from the 2015 vintage

      A ripe, pretty and well-layered nose displays a relatively elegant array of both red and dark cherry, raspberry, violet and a whisper of earth. I very much like the sense of underlying tension to the beautifully well-detailed and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in an ever-so-mildly austere finale. This is really quite good and worth considering. 2022+ Allen Meadows (USA)

      A delicious and very silky red with plums, dried strawberries and hints of lemon rind. Medium to full body, gorgeous texture and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften but very pretty already.

    • Morey-Saint-Denis 2014 - Wine Enthusiast - October 2016 - 89/100

      This perfumed wine features ripe tannins and strawberry flavors. It is structured, with good concentration and acidity. The wine is developing well with the richness as well as line of fresher acidity. Drink from 2019.

      Black cherry, blackberry, mineral and earth flavors are allied to a dense, muscular structure in this red, which is balanced, if firm and compact now, with fine length. Best from 2018 through 2024.  By Bruce Sanderson (USA)

    • Morey Saint Denis 2014 - Burghound.com - 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+
