The Amiot’s have been growing and producing wine for five generations in Burgundy, Jean-Louis and Didier Amiot are now at the helm of the Domaine and are regarded as one of Burgundy’s great Domaines.
With Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south the tiny village of Morey St. Denis used to opt to utilise their neighbours village names as their identity. As such Morey St. Denis missed out on the fame of its neighbours.
The proof that this village is of incredible stature is that it contains 5 Grand Cru vineyards, in fact 40 hectares of its 148 hectares are Grand Cru! The wines are destemmed between 70% and 100% depending on the vintage, slow and gentle extraction by cold maceration over 5-7 days followed by fermentation using natural yeast in thermo regulated vessels , 30% new oak for 1er Cru wines and 50% for Grand Cru wines over a period of 15-18 months, only one racking of the wine prior to bottling and bottled neither fined nor filtered, both of which are carried out according to lunar cycles.
