A leading Premier Cru of the area, this vineyard is in fact so well-regarded by locals that the entire appellation of Morey-Saint-Denis was very nearly called 'Morey-des-Ormes'. Hemmed in by Grand and Premier Cru sites, there simply isn't a patch of ordinary ground on this slope of shallow, lime-rich marl soils, where vibrant ripe cherry notes mixed with earthy spice are the hallmarks of this beautifully charming yet deeply serious style. Everything is on show here, and pleasure is guaranteed. Don't wait!

Overview

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

88-92/100 Allen Meadows (Burghound)

“There is a background note of menthol to the pretty and fresh red currant, earth and lightly spicy nose. There is a very supple and refined mouth feel to the satin-textured middle weight flavors that also possess a seductive mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced finish. This should drink well young.”
