The village offering from Morey Saint Denis is sourced from grapes in “Clos Solon” and and “Les Crais”. The vines were planted in 1966 and another section in 1986. Under most circumstances, Forey does not rack his wines during elevage, permitting the wines to rest on the fine lies until they are racked when ready for bottling.
"I adore the 2010 vintage," said Regis Forey. "The wines are wonderfully typical of Burgundy pinot noir. They have great balance and finesse, very good material and grape sugars, and fine, enrobed tannins." Forey added that crop levels were very low and that he planned to bottle on the early side to preserve fruit (four wines had already been racked into tank by the time of my visit). And he clearly believes that the wines are built to age. He noted that he doesn't think the 2008s have a big structure for aging, and that they should be enjoyed in the mid-term for their fruit and finesse. Forey did a relatively gentle extraction in 2010 to avoid crushing the grape seeds: just one pumpover per day until the end of the fermentation, then delestage or remontage at the end.
