Made from a blend of 3 vineyards with around 70 year old vines which lie in the middle of the appellation, from Tres Girard, Les Cognees and Bas Chenevery. This wine is consistently very aromatic and incredibly attractive when young with great depth of aromas and remarkable generosity on the palate also. A stunning village wine that provides great pleasure from a very young age. This year the ferment contained 95% whole bunches this year with some tiny millerande grapes from very old vines of 70+ years giving the impression of more sweetness and more tannins giving an impression of more density yet very fine palate.
‘(80% whole cluster). Once again the nose is very ripe yet not jammy with its array of poached plum, spice, cassis and violet wisps. The medium-bodied flavors are not quite as concentrated but there is still very good volume to the energetic, dusty and youthfully austere finish that is presently quite linear. Drink 2026+.’ (88-91) points, Burghound.com January 2020.
‘The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis Vieilles Vignes contains around 80% whole bunch. It has an open, floral bouquet, well defined and featuring black cherries, bilberry and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, good acidity and black fruit infused with blood orange and citrus lemon. The compact finish needs to develop more length.’ (89-91) points.
