LUCIEN LE MOINE

Morey St Denis "Genavrieres"

 The 1er cru Genavrieres is located on the highest part of the Clos de la Roche vineyard. The wine has both the body of the Clos de la Roche and the finesse of this high part of Morey St Denis. 

The vines here were once exclusively white, but had gradually been taken over by Pinot Noir. The site is very rocky, with a visibly high content of limestone in the soils. The limestone quarry on the hill above the vineyard lays bare the sub-strata of the area.
