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.
The fingerprints of the 2014 vintage are all over this very elegant and refined young Clos de la Bussière. The wine offers up a superb bouquet of red and black cherries, pomegranate, raw cocoa, a fine base of soil, fresh herb tones and plenty of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with an impressively sappy core, ripe tannins and impeccable focus and balance on the very long and still fairly youthful finish. This will want a good decade in the cellar to really reach its plateau, but it is going to be a superb vintage of Clos de la Bussière and will be well worth the wait! (Drink between 2024-2060)
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 dark red. Open-knit aromas of raspberry, brown spices and chocolate. Densely packed and velvety for the vintage and for the cru, with red berry, brown spice and iron flavors complemented by a salty quality. This rich, rather pliant 2014 finishes with excellent length and smooth tannins. While it should offer considerable early appeal, it also has the stuffing to age. (ST)
