1er Cru

Morey Saint-Denis premier cru

Cuvée des Alouettes
Located in the heart of the “Clos des Monts-Luisants”, the vines are separated from the Clos de la Roche by just one metre! It shares many characteristics with its illustrious neighbour, boasting great aromatic complexity and a structured, well-balanced palate. The finish, with its slightly firmer tannins and refreshing acidity, is the main difference to the Grand Cru.
