Appellation Morey Saint Denis

The Morey-Saint-Denis appellation is a French AOC that produces Burgundy wines. Exposed to the east on hillsides culminating at around 2,501 meters above sea level, the so-called "village appellation" includes a vineyard of 97 hectares, 42 hectares of which are devoted to the production of Burgundy Premier Crus.

Despite its surface area, the Morey-Saint-Denis vineyard produces 20 premiers crus of Burgundy. It is also one of the best-endowed communes in Burgundy Grands Crus with: Bonnes-Mares, Clos de la Roche, Clos de Tart, Clos des Lambrays and Clos Saint Denis which are located in the commune.

Morey-Saint-Denis mainly produces red wines made from Pinot Noir, but also white wines made from Chardonnay. Red wines have an average aging potential, they require 3 to 15 years before opening a bottle. The white wines themselves are of weak guard. We estimate only 2 to 4 years.

Among the best vintages of the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation, the 1935 vintage, the great vintages of 1943 as well as the 1952 or 1971 vintages offer excellent wines. 1961, 1976 grands crus, and the 2005 vintage are exceptional vintages. Finally, the wines of 1928, 1929vintage 1969 and 1978 are the best vintages of this appellation.
