Morey-Saint-Denis

Community in the area Cote de Nuits who like so many in Burgundy added the name of the best location in the 19th century. In the meantime, Clos Saint-Denis is no longer considered the best. The vineyards cover 100 hectares of vineyards. Under the village appellation of the same name, red wines from Pinot Noir with Pinot Gris and Pinot Liébault are made. The white wines are made from Chardonnay.
