A new addition in 2017 shows the poise and balance I would expect from a merger of 1er Cru vineyards. Raspberry and rhubarb crumble with in a delicate envelope of fine acid and ripe tannin. Superb. 2020 to 2025.


Jancis Robinson

Barrel sample. A new cuvée of four parcels: Les Sorbès, Les Gruenchers, Les Millandes, Les Faconnières. He used to sell this in bulk or put the fruit into village wines. But small harvests have pushed him to make the wine on its own. Good results in 2015 and 2016 have encouraged him to continue. In the axis of the combe of Morey-St-Denis, more soil, and the wines tend to be more supple – open in youth compared with Clos des Ormes, which is more mineral and tendu. Making this blend of parcels, which gives a more supple and rounded wine to please some of his customers, allows him to make the Clos des Ormes he wants – less consensual in style. 25% new oak. Light cherry red. Perfumed with sweet red-cherry fruit. On the palate a touch of oak spice, the tannins supple and friendly around a good fruit core. Generous and rounded and an attractive, chewy food-friendly finish. Drink 2020-2028.
