Morey Saint Denis
Most of the vineyards are planted with Pinot Noir and a few parcels of Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc varieties, yielding a rare and interesting white wine, generally quite firm and opulent.
Red: its colour is usually a full, firm, bright ruby, carmine or intense garnet with purplish highlights. The bouquet is partly of black fruits (blackcurrant, bilberry) and partly of red, pitted fruits such as cherries. Variants include bramble, violet, liquorice, and fruits conserved in liquor. When older it often evokes the “wildwood” scents of game, leather, moss, and even truffle.
Sustained and structured, this wine lingers in the mouth without flinching. It has just the right balance between body and fruit. With its rounded tannins and mouth-filling generosity, it sings tenor, so to speak, in the Burgundian choir.
