The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis Village is raised in 40% new oak and there are four barrels, so I'll let you do the math. It has a clean and focused bouquet: dark berry fruit, touches of pressed flowers emerging with time. The palate is very fresh on the entry, quite succulent and lively with hints of blood orange and cinnamon toward the energetic finish. This is a very well-crafted village cru from Drouhin-Laroze. They’ve done it! “What have they done, exactly," you rightfully ask. Well, Drouhin-Laroze has finally produced a clutch of wines commensurate with their stellar array of holdings. Without wishing any disrespect to Philippe Drouhin, since first encountering their wines in the late nineties, myself and other mavens felt that they were a bit “over-produced.” Maybe picked too late? Certainly they were often burdened with an excessive use of new oak that obfuscated terroir, and when you have half a dozen grand crus under your wing, that is a shame. (NM)
A plummy and floral nose leads to rich, round and seductively textured middle weight flavors that possess an attractive sense of vivacity where the sneaky long finish belies only a trace of rusticity.
