Morey Saint-Denis 2013
The Morey Saint Denis wine from Maison Louis Jadot is a very elegant wine of red fruits and spices aromas, with smooth tannins.
Morey Saint Denis is situated between Gevrey Chambertin to the North and Chambolle Musigny to the South, in the centre of the Côte de Nuits. The vineyard, at an altitude between 250 and 360 metres, is bordering the village of Morey. The vineyard is surrounding the village of Morey, on a slop, facing East. The soil is mainly made of calcerous clay.
After the challenges thrown at them in 2012, Bourgogne winemakers were hoping for a peaceful 2013 but capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, for the most part, the pickers had to wait until the start of October to take up their secateurs. The consequences of the weather's whims - such as shatter and millerandage, hail damage, concentration and disease - all had an impact on the quantities harvested. Across the region, no winegrowing area was spared however experience has made all the difference and 2013 is nevertheless considered a very successful vintage.
The fermentation takes place in tanks during 3-4 weeks, after which they are aged in barrel for 10-12 months before being bottled.
