The wines of Morey Saint Denis, where this Grand Cru is located, have their own character: powerful like the wines of its neighbor Gevrey-Chambertin yet elegant like the wines of Chambolle-Musigny. Clos Saint Denis once belonged to the church of Saint Denis, founded in 1203 in the Vergy château. The vineyard faces east on calcareous clay, iron and marl soils. This Pinot Noir wine is fermented for up to 4 weeks in vats, and then matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months.
This powerful, dark wine has the aromas and flavors of cherries, black currant and spice that are typical of the terroir, along with elegant tannins. It will develop for 10 to 20 years in the bottle.
