Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

The 64 hectares of the Morey-Saint-Denis village appellation offer a source of strikingly good value in the context of Burgundy’s increasingly high prices. This occasionally overlooked appellation in the Côte de Nuits is almost exclusively devoted to Pinot Noir, although Chardonnays can occasionally be found – the domaines of Dujac and Ponsot make notable ones.

In terms of style, Morey-Saint-Denis sits somewhere between the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. Fruit-forward but also with impressive structure, they also possess fine tannins and attractive Pinot perfume. The best examples, produced by the likes of Domaine Dujac, also offer excellent cellaring potential, though most can be enjoyed young.
