Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru 2007
With its origins dating back to 1203, this vineyard produces a bold Grand Cru with spicy cherry characters and firm but elegant tannins.
Clos St Denis is a 5.99 ha Grand Cru site to the North of the village of Morey St Denis. The Grand Crus are on the same hard limestone found in Gevrey-Chambertin. Clos St Denis is closer to the base of the hillside with soils rich in brown limestone and benefits from a particularly sheltered microclimate.
The level of rain was rather high this year, and could be considered either as a handicap or as a positive asset. The ground water levels had been very low in the past years, and 2007 would have allowed an easier demineralisation creating an advantage for the developing of the wine aromas.
Clos Saint Denis is fermented 3 to 4 weeks in vats and then aged in oak barrels between 18 to 20 months.
