Recent Addition: Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Monts Luisants

I just got back from confirming our newest vineyard source. Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru ‘Monts Luisants’, this site is quite impressive for a number of reasons.

Located in Morey Saint Denis, Monts Luisants has a few sections, one of which is even classed as village level. We are sourcing from a 1er Cru parcel. This site is far more rocky (tons of white oolite) than the Les Chaffots site that I source from, and quite a bit more steep. The vineyard is situated on a 27% grade! Another interesting bit is that part of Monts Luisants 1er Cru was actually parceled off into Clos de la Roche Grand Cru. With Les Chaffots 1er Cru being directly over Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru and Monts Luisants 1er being directly over Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, lets just say that I am in a very good mood!
