MOREY SAINT DENIS Village
Total Surface : 22 ouvrées (1 ouvrée = 4 ares 28)
Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Average Age of the Vines : 38 years old
Nature of the Soil : This wine is the result of a blending of several parcels : The Pierres Virants (80% of the blend), En Seuvrey, The Cognées and The Porroux. The vines are rooted in limestone and chalky-clay soils from the Jurassic period: Bathonien white oolite on the top of the hill and Bajocien chalky eutroques on the downslope. Directly above the village, the valley modifies certain exposures and creates a more marly soil.
Harvesting : Manual Only
Average Production : 4200 Bottles.
Wine Characteristics : It’s most common look is an assertive tone (bright ruby, intense garnet carmine) with purple highlights. The bouquet is divided among black fruit (black current, blueberry) and pitted red fruits (cherry). With age, it evokes moss and truffle. Sustained and structured, it possesses the right balance between a powerful body and a fruity expression.
