A notably more elegant nose blends notes of red currant and dark cherry with those of violet, spice and warm earth. Here too the medium-bodied flavors possess a beguiling texture before terminating in a complex and beautifully persistent finish. This somehow manages to be dense and serious yet elegant.
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte has a very attractive bouquet with joyful maraschino cherry, cassis and blueberry scents permeated by cold stone, almost flinty aromas. This is very well defined. The palate is crisp on the entry with fine tannin, layers of pure red and black fruit and well-judged acidity. It conveys the typicité of this premier cru with style and panache and as such, it constitutes one of Christophe Perrot-Minot's best offerings this year. This comes recommended.
Bright medium-dark red. More cherry than raspberry on the nose, with complicating notes of brown spices, menthol, crushed rock and white pepper. Silky but taut and energetic, with sappy saline minerality giving tension to the middle palate. The wine's nervy stony quality is nicely buffered by its subtly sweet red fruits. This pure, penetrating wine offers noteworthy finesse.(ST)
