Morey-Saint-Denis En la Rue de Vergy
Located at the top of the hill, just above the famous Grand Cru
Clos de Tart, the soil of Morey-Saint-Denis En la Rue de Vergy is marked by the presence of limestone in abundance. The 45-year-old vines occupy an area of 0.50 hectare (1.24 acres).
The wine thus acquires an airy dimension unique among the wines from this village. The palate is firm, with powerful yet mastered energy, and a fresh finish. The aromatic expression is marked by notes of wild fruits (cranberries, and bramble berries), but also cocoa, smoked bacon, iris, and peach.
Its lengthy mouthwatering character makes it drinkable young, but keeping it for 10 to 15 years will reveal its finesse. We recommend decanting the wine in its youth.
Depending on the vintage, the wine is made from about 50% of whole bunches, and is aged for about 18 months in barrels, with 20% of new barrels.
This wine will go well with a Bresse chicken roasted in foil, or with sliced beef and porcini mushrooms or even pork filet mignon with ginger.
