Vineyard Notes: Pinot Noir fruit is harvested by hand from vines in the Clos Salon and Les Crais lieux-dits in Morey-Saint-Denis. Vines are 30 and 50 years old, trained in Guyot, and planted at 10,000 vines/ha.
Winemaking Notes: After partial de-stemming (30-70%) and a 3-4 day cold soak, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel tanks. Cuvaison lasts 22-26 days. The Morey-Saint-Denis is blended after pressing and aged for 16-20 months in 500-l demi-muids (10% new). Bottling occurs without fining or filtration.
Tasting Notes: Aged in demi-muid, Forey's Morey-Saint-Denis a similar purity of fruit, with breed and finesse as befits its terroir. Fresh tobacco, high-toned spice, and a subtle and appetizing hint of stems frame a palate of round fruit, gentle earth, and slightly firm yet noble tannins.
