Clos de la Roche is one of five Grand Crus in Morey-Saint-Denis and takes its name from a large rock (roche) used

in Celtic times for rituals. The original Clos was classified as a Première Cuvée by Jules Lavalle in 1855 with a total

area of 4.57 hectares. Several neighbouring climats: Mochamps, Froichots, Chabiots and Monts-Luisants-Bas were

added at the time of the AOC Grand Cru status decree in 1936. Another expansion occured in 1971 when parts of

Genavrières and Chaffots were included by the INAO. This additional territory has taken today's surface area to 

16.9 hectares. Clos de la Roche is east facing on a gentle slope at an altitude of 270 to 300 metres. The brown top-

soil, a mix of clay and limestone scree with large boulders very close to the surface is hardly 30 cm deep in some

places. These hard rocky soils make for a well-structured, powerful yet elegant wine capable of long ageing.
