What is the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation?
Morey-Saint-Denis is a commune and a corresponding appellation in the sub-region of Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It was created in December 1936. The appellation produces red and white wines. However, the vast majority of the wines produced under the appellation are red wines, made from the Pinot Noir grape variety. About 5% of the production is devoted to white wines, like Fixin and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Most of them are made from Chardonnay. However, one or two plots are planted with Pinot Blanc or Aligoté .
Grands Crus and Premiers Crus
The village is home to four vineyards Grand Cru: "le Clos Saint-Denis", "le Clos de la Roche", "le Clos des Lambrays" and "le Clos de Tart". The latter is a monopoly of the estate of the same name. The Clos des Lambrays is the property of the Domaine des Lambrays, except for a fraction of it. There are five if we include the northern part of Bonnes-Mares. The 20 vineyards Premier Cru are relatively unknown, even to many Burgundy lovers. The blending of several vineyards as a generic of the Premier Cru of Morey-Saint-Denis is more common there than in some communes. The style of a classic Morey-Saint-Denis wine is halfway between the firm and consistent style of Gevrey-Chambertin and the bold but slightly more open and fragrant style of Chambolle-Musigny. That said, the variation of terroir within the commune is sufficient to create multiple and very different styles of wine.
Best producers of Morey St Denis
However, there are a number of top estates based in the village. In addition to the two named above, these include Dujac, Arlaud and Domaine Ponsot. In addition, several big names based elsewhere, including Leroy, Rousseau and Roumier, produce wine from plots.
The commune currently has about 140 hectares of vines. This is divided almost equally between the classifications of the village, premier cru and grand cru. The vines are planted on fine, well-drained oolitic limestone on the highest slopes and on richer soils with a strong marl component on the lower slopes.
