Morey likely comes from “Moure”, an ancient Latin word describing a boulder shaped like a muzzle, which would refer to “l’éperon du Grognot”, a snout-shaped hill to the southeast of the village. The vineyards face east-southeast, at altitudes from 220 to 260m (720 to 850 feet), with soils of limestone, marl, gravel and red-silt. Our parcels are from the following lieu-dits: 1. Cheneverys, 2.Clos Solon, 3. Très Girard, 4. Les Crais, 5. Bras, 6. Seuvres and 7. Les Pourroux. The Clos Solon has a deep marly soil, which gives structure to the wine. The soil of Cheneverys is rich in iron and offers finesse. Finally, Les Crais adds elegance, thanks to its gravelly soil.
From the vineyard to the winery, each operation is adapted to the vintage to make the best wines possible and to fully express each parcel’s terroir. Only older oak barrels are used for the aging process. Bright ruby color. Typical nose of the Côte de Nuits, with aromas of cherries and raspberries. Good balance between the fruit, acidity and tannins. An elegant and generous wine, with bright fruit on the finish, and good length. The Morey-Saint-Denis, served at 16°C, pairs wonderfully with meat dishes and aged cheeses.
