Vineyard Notes

The red wine from Morey-Saint-Denis comes from 6 plots at the foot of the slope, west of the road (RD 974), and east of the village of Morey-Saint-Denis, where the slope is slight (3%). The plots range in altitude from 249 to 264 meters, facing northeast to due south. The loamy soil is less stony than higher upslope, with patches of Comblanchien limestone fragments in some parts. The plots for the Morey-Saint-Denis village wine lie on two different types of substratum. Some plots overlie fine deposits, laid down over millions of years, that gradually filled in the fault trough (graben), while other plots overlie alluvial fan deposits at the mouth of the valley (Combe de Morey-Saint-Denis).


Winemaking

Our grapes are vinified with little or no destemming, depending on the nature of the vintage. Only indigenous yeasts are used to preserve the authentic origin of the wines. Fermentation lasts about two weeks with some light punching down at the start, then pumping over for a smoother extraction towards the end of fermentation. The main concern is the balance between firmness and suppleness for the tannins. After being lightly pressed in a pneumatic press, the wines are transferred to the cellar by gravity.


Ageing

The wines will spend 14 to 18 months in oak barrels. We buy the wood two years in advance to guarantee sufficient drying time for the quality of our barrels. Elevage plays a key role in refining the tannins, which is why we use a significant proportion of new wood.
