The 2015 Trés Girard (which is also made from purchased grapes) is excellent this year, with a very perfumed and elegant profile on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of plums, cherries, cocoa, dark soil tones, violets and gamebird. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and utterly refined, with a sappy core, ripe, seamless tannins and excellent length and grip on the seductive finish. This is a bit more forward than the Chambolle “la Bussière” and every bit as fine. 2021-2060.
Somewhat curiously this is aromatically more refined than either of the two Chambolle villages examples with its cool, pretty and airy nose of pomegranate, plum, violet, anise and soft earth nuances. The delicious, rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess a seductive, even caressing mouth feel while delivering good length if only average depth on the delicious finish where a hint of rusticity appears.
Medium red. An oaky sweetness to the aromas of raspberry and cranberry. A silky, pretty wine with attractive inner-mouth lift to its red berry and saline mineral flavors. Juicy, firmly built and solidly tannic but already quite tasty. Made from a high percentage of very ripe, small grapes, according to Laurent Lignier.(ST)
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard comes from purchased fruit vinified by Laurent Lignier. There is a candied, almost confectionery shop aroma to this Morey with effervescent red cherry and kirsch aromas. The palate is nicely structured with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth with darker berry fruit occupying the slightly grainy finish. Give this a year or two in bottle.(NM)
