2017 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS (LERX58217A)
From the En Pierre Virant vineyard at the top of the village, above les Chaffots. The generous red fruit has a brambly note to it and the tannins are powerful and thick while remaining melting and ripe; added elegance derives from the fine mineral finish.
2015 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS (LERX58215A)
From the En Pierre Virant vineyard at the top of the village, above les Chaffots. The high elevation of this vineyard was a positive advantage this year, making it a mite cooler: the wine is intense and plummy, with gorgeous red fruit, but it carries excellent balancing acidity, which, when allied to the fine tannins, keep it juicy and fresh. The very high quality derives also from a generous addition of 1er cru grapes, since no Les Luisants was made.
2014 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS (LERX58214X)
2013 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS (LERX58213A)
Contains some 1er cru Monts Luisants this year. Rich black hedgerow fruit and a very elegant fine impression on the palate. Vibrant ripe long finish.
2014 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS 1er cru Les Monts Luisants (LERX62214X)
2014 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru Les Champeaux (LERX66214X)
2017 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru La Perrière (LERX67217A)
A high proportion of whole-bunch fermentation gives a delightfully transparent wine, each element clearly delineated: the ripe black fruit, rich rounded chocolaty tannins and a long fresh juicy bitter mineral finish.
2017 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru Les Goulots (LERX68217A)
From a vineyard just below the treeline, with thin soil washed by water running down from the woods. As ever, this is one of the most elegant wines we tasted this year: there is an ethereal quality to the fresh smoky bramble fruit, beautifully fine minerality and along fresh finish. Very special.
2014 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru Les Goulots (LERX68214X)
2013 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru Les Goulots (LERX68213A)
Just below the treeline, with thin soil washed by water running down from the woods. Beautifully elegant and pure red fruit, with a strong backbone of minerality driving to a vibrant lovely finish. This is superb.
2012 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru Les Goulots (LERX68212A)
Just below the treeline, with thin soil that is washed by water running down from the woods. This is full of scented fresh black fruit, spice, and a very present but fine mineral streak that gives great energy. Absolutely lovely.
2017 CLOS VOUGEOT 'Petit Maupertuis' (LERX74217A)
65% whole bunches give a fresh, broad-shouldered wine with sour cherry fruit, firm ripe tannins and depth, and a long dark mineral finish.
2014 ECHEZEAUX (LERX78214A)
2013 CLOS-DE-LA-ROCHE (LERX80213C)
2014 BONNES MARES (LERX82214C)
Dense and powerful, with rich, fine ripe fruit and enormous length. Drink 2025 ' 2034
2017 MAZOYERES-CHAMBERTIN (LERX86217A)
A floral quality to the dense silky black fruit gives a pleasant lift, and it bursts with dense spicy energy, finishing on a salty mineral note.
2017 MEURSAULT (LERX28217A)
A subtle, elegant wine with ripe intense yellow fruit and a lovely mineral flourish on the finish.
2017 MEURSAULT, Vireuils (LERX30217A)
More new wood, and greater intensity and power than the 'regular' village. The yellow fruit is partnered with bright citrus acidity, and a smooth long dark stony finish.
