A ripe yet agreeably fresh nose features notes of plum, spice, earth and pretty floral nuances. There is both good richness and punch to the medium-bodied and fleshy flavors that tighten up significantly on the overtly powerful and entirely serious finish where a hint of bitter cherry arises.
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru comes from four different lieux-dits from north to south of the appellation. It has an attractive bouquet with black cherries, bilberry and orange blossom; the oak neatly folded into the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, masculine in style with subtle tobacco notes infusing the slightly broody and yet fresh and tensile finish. It deserves a couple of years in bottle and should evolve into a very attractive Morey-Saint-Denis.(NM)
The 2015 domaine bottling of Morey AC also strikes me as a step up from the négociant version, as this is more pure and more focused than the former example. The bouquet is not quite as generous as the Chambolle above, but equally refined in its expression of plums, black cherries, dark soil, venison, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and bitter chocolate. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with a fine core, ripe, moderate tannins and a long, well-balanced finish. This too is a classy villages. 2020-2045.
Bright medium red. Pure, ripe aromas of raspberry and brown spices. Delivers sappy sweetness and lovely spicy lift to its red berry flavors. This intense, nicely delineated village wine really echoes on the firm, persistent finish.(ST)
