Cuvée des Grives
The atypical position of the vines at the top of the “Monts-Luisants” hillside, bordered by the forest, gives Morey Saint Denis “Cuvée des Grives” a great deal of freshness and tension. Sustained and structured, it strikes just the right balance between full body, fruit expression, velvety texture and minerality.
