Wines and signs: BIVB matches appellations to Chinese Zodiac

The Dragon: Morey-Saint-Denis

The Dragon is the most powerful animal in the Zodiac.

The Village of Morey-Saint-Denis in the Côte de Nuits could easily be named ‘Crête du Dragon’ – dragon’s crest – because of its 20 premier cru climats and five grand cru appellations in the hillside above the village: Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint-Denis, Clos de Tart, Clos des Lambrays and the Bonne Mares appellation, which is shared with Chambolle-Musigny.

Reds from Morey-Saint-Denis are masculine, powerful and rich – just like people born in the Year of the Dragon.

Year of the Dragon: 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012
