Clos Saint-Denis was originally a church-owned vineyard, belonging to the Collégiale de St-Denis de Vergy. Wines from here have been described as the “Mozart” of the Cote-de-Nuits region, and famous producers like Domaine Dujac and Domaine Drouhin have made spectacular wines from this tiny piece of land.
