Winemaker Notes

The village of Morey Saint Denis presents 5 Grands Crus and 17 Premiers Crus including the « Clos des Ormes » located to the north of the village next to the other premiers crus « Aux Chezeaux, « Aux Charmes », « Les Charrières ». The soil consists in clay and chalk allowing it to be well drained.

This premier cru wine shows a deep colour and aromas of red berries and spicies. Its structure reminds of the Gevrey-Chambertin wines.

It will match very well with red meat and most of cheeses. It will be able to age 10 to 15 years according to the vintages, respecting good cellaring conditions.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes has a fragrant, floral nose with blackberry, raspberry, cold wet limestone and light graphite aromas. The palate is fresh and tensile with supple tannin, impressive purity and a lightly peppered finish that lingers in the mouth. Very fine.
Range: 90-92
BH 92
Burghound.com
Wood and menthol influence is not something missing from the nose of earth, lavender and red cherry. The supple, round and moderately complex middle weight flavors don't possess the same intensity or minerality yet the sneaky long finish is solidly complex and the tannins are sufficiently firm to make clear that this too will require at least some patience before it's ready for prime time drinking.
Range: 90-92

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
