Grand Clos Rousseau is the most southerly parcel of Santenay's 1er crus and lies next door to the Maranges vineyards.The wine is always well-rounded. The colour is brilliant and dark, almost black. Its aromas are of violets, gooseberry, black cherry and stewed fruit, reflected in a complex palate with a smooth, intense and well-built attack. In the mouth, dense and concentrated notes of ripe fruit are highly present in the finish, suggesting a similarity to the wines of the Cote de Nuits.
In 2006, Thomas Morey decided to set up his own domaine with his wife Sylvie.Santenay Vieilles Vignes comes from vines in the lieu dit "Prorons dessus", a plot with excellent exposure, lying immediately below the famous "Clos de Tavannes", best of Santenay's 1er crus.The vines were planted in the late fifties. The Santenay village appellation comprises 180 ha of vines spread among various slopes surrounding the village at altitudes ranging from 220 to 400 metres. This cuvee has very perfumed nose, more like Chassagne than your typical rustic Santenay.
