Louis Latour Morey St. Denis 2017
Our Morey-Saint-Denis reveals an intense and bright ruby color. The nose is deep evoking pepper, blackcurrant and undergrowth. On the palate, a very pleasant sensation of freshness with silky tannins. A persistent length.
The village of Morey-Saint-Denis can be found just to the south of Gevrey-Chambertin and produces wines that are predominantly red and which were not distinguished from its neighbours until the strict application of the Appellation Contrôlée laws in the 1930's. The wines, on the whole, show a greater depth and concentration than those of Gevrey-Chambertin and their tannins are less forthright. They tend to be rich with lashings of red and black fruit character.
