Clos Saint-Denis AOC
Description to Clos Saint-Denis AOC
Grand cru location or appellation in the community Morey-Saint-Denis in the Burgundian area Cote d'Or, The name refers to Saint Dionysius of Paris (3rd century), in whose honor a religious community was founded in 1023, which owned vineyards here. The name Clos Saint-Denis was first mentioned in 1367. After the French Revolution (1789), church property was auctioned off. Today the majority of wineries belong to the community. It was classified as a Grand Cru in 1936.
The vineyard at around 300 meters above sea level covers 6.6 hectares of vineyards on brown, calcareous marl with a relatively low proportion of stones. In addition to the historic Clos Saint-Denis (2.1 ha), the location also includes the Climats Calouère (1.3 ha), Les Chaffots (1.3 ha) and Maison Brûlée (1.8 ha). It consists of 37 plots, which are shared by almost 20 owners. However, there was probably never a wall (to which the clos indicates). The Grand Cru location is to the north Clos de la Roche, the Grand Cru location closes to the south Clos des Lambrays on.
