Louis Jadot Morey-Saint-Denis 2016
Morey-Saint-Denis is situated between Gevrey Chambertin to the North and Chambolle Musigny to the South, in the center of the Côte de Nuits. The vineyard, at an altitude between 250 and 360 meters, is bordering the village of Morey. The vineyard is surrounding the village of Morey, on a slope, facing East. The soil is mainly made of calcareous clay.
The Morey Saint Denis wine from Maison Louis Jadot is a very elegant wine of red fruits and spices aromas, with smooth tannins.
It will be a perfect partner for red meats and quite strong cheeses.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
While Morey-St Denis might not get the same attention as its neighbors, Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south, there is no reason why it shouldn’t. The same line of limestone runs from the Combe de Lavaux in Gevrey—all the way through Morey—ending in Chambolle.
There are four grand cru vineyards, moving southwards from the border with Gevrey-Chambertin: Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Clos des Lambrays, Clos de Tart and a small segment of Bonnes-Mares overlapping from Chambolle. Clos de la Roche is probably the finest vineyard, giving wines of true depth, body, and sturdiness for the long haul than most other vineyards.
Pinot noir from Morey-St-Denis is known for its deep red cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Aromas of spice, licorice and purple flowers are present in the wines’ youth, evolving to forest and game as the wine ages.
