Morey St. Denis is sometimes overlooked between its two famous neighbors, but its wines are of equal class, combining elegance and structure. Over half of its total area is classified as either premier cru or grand cru vineyards. The overall standard is excellent, with an unusually high-minded cadre of growers. The wines offer a suppleness and delicacy that make them some of the most elegant in Burgundy. Although rarely heavy, they tend to be so well balanced and full of character that they age far longer than one might suspect.
