Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru ‘Les Chaffots’: A few recent photos

Looking down the hill of Les Chaffots towards Clos Saint Denis

Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru ‘Les Chaffots’ is the only premier cru vineyard that I currently source from. It’s location is quite interesting as it is just above Clos Saint Denis and just above and to the left of Clos de la Roche, both Grand Crus. Part of the current Clos Saint Denis was actually at one time Les Chaffots. At just over 25-30 years for the vine age, these vines are also the youngest that I currently source from. The terrain here is the most littered with limestone of the three as well. The quality of fruit here speaks for itself when tasting the wines. I’m very excited to continue working with this fruit. Just two weeks ago, we visited the vineyard and I took a few shots.

Enjoy!
