Grand Cru vineyard or appellation in the municipality of Morey-Saint-Denis in the French Côte d'Or region of Burgundy. The name refers to Saint Dionysius of Paris (3rd century), in whose honour a religious community was founded in 1023, which owned vineyards here. The name Clos Saint-Denis was first mentioned in a document in 1367. After the French Revolution (1789), the ecclesiastical property was auctioned off. Today, most of it belongs to vineyards from the municipality. It was classified as a Grand Cru in 1936. The vineyard at around 300 metres above sea level covers 6.6 hectares of vines on brown, calcareous marl with a relatively small proportion of stones.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
