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.
Fermentation: Traditional in open vats
Ageing: 10 to 12 months ageing in oak barrels, 20% new
Barrels: Louis Latour cooperage, french oak, medium toasted
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.
Food Pairing: Game – red meat – mature cheeses
