The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière, which contains 50% whole bunch fruit, has a clean and precise, almost pixelated bouquet with blackberry, briary and cold limestone scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite structured in the mouth with filigree and tensile tannin. This is very focused, linear in style, which is surprising given the warmth during the growing season, with great clarity on the finish. This is just a fantastic Morey-Saint-Denis from Christophe Roumier.(NM)
(a monopole of the domaine). A more deeply pitched nose combines notes of dark currant, earth, underbrush and discreet humus nuances. There is fine richness and plenty of punch to the more voluminous and once again solidly concentrated flavors that are shaped by surprisingly sleek tannins on the firm, highly complex, lengthy and impeccably well-balanced finish save for a trace of warmth. This firm and dusty effort will need all of a decade to shed its core of tannins and become more user friendly. 2025+
Good dark red. Darker and more medicinal than the village Chambolle, offering aromas of black cherry, mocha and menthol. Densely packed and fine-grained, with its flavors of black cherry, menthol, minerals and licorice showing very good verve considering the wine's low acidity (3.1 grams per liter). But then the pH here is a reasonable 3.41. This has turned out well. (ST)
Rich, almost confected raspberry nose with considerable aromatic power. Rich and concentrated, with robust, firm tannins, making this very different from Roumier's Chambolles. A tad rustic but there is vigour and energy. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026.(SB)
The 2015 Clos de la Bussière was also showing itself to hail from the riper side of the vintage, delivering a bouquet of black cherries, chocolate, venison, dark soil and a topnote of bonfire. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fairly powerful in personality, with broad shoulders, a bit more mid-palate purity out of the blocks than the Chambolle AC, modest tannins and a long, buxom finish. 2023-2060.
