This trades a bit of elegance in favor of more aromatic complexity on the cool and pure mix of red currant, earth and game that exhibits discreet floral top notes. There is both fine volume and intensity to the punchy flavors that are more refined than usual thanks to the fine grain of the supporting tannins on the attractive well-balanced and persistent finish.
Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière has a lifted, charming bouquet with ample black plum, damson and incense aromas that gain vigor in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, delivering the structure and perhaps the masculinity you expect from a Morey-Saint-Denis, with a pinch of black pepper than enhances the finish. This is a well-crafted if maybe slightly conservative wine from Christophe Roumier...but still "yum yum." (NM)
Bright red with ruby tones. Musky aromas of raspberry, iron and fresh blood. Sweet, plush and smooth on entry, offering good density, then turns a bit firmer on the back half, with substantial dusty tannins nicely supported by the wine's flesh. A bit less refined than the village Chambolle but has more backbone. (ST)
