Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Morey St Denis is not short of impressive grands crus, but that the village is named after this one goes some way to support locals’ argument that this is the finest of them all. I won’t dispute that in 2016. It seldom has the power and force of its famous neighbour, Clos de la Roche, but it makes up for this with sublime finesse.

    Score: 95-97

    The 2016 Clos St Denis Grand Cru has a clean and fresh bouquet with a delicate floral aspect that complements the vibrant red berry fruit. This conveys a sense of class and nobility. You are in the presence of a serious Burgundy! The palate is silky smooth with filigreed tannin, pitch-perfect acidity and a sensual, long and crystalline finish. This may well be the best 2016 from Benjamin Leroux. This is quite brilliant and up there among the best I have tasted from this grand cru in barrel. Drink 2022-2050

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2018,
    Score: 92-94

    Once again a very pungent nose is composed by notes of wood toast and reduction. On the plus side there is first-rate elegance to the lilting and finely detailed flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel before culminating in a sneaky long and impeccably well-balanced finale that also flashes a touch of youthful austerity. Lovely. Drink 2031+

    Score: 92-94

    Bright, dark red. Reticent aromas of purple fruits, licorice and rose petal. Sappy and penetrating in the mouth, but more backward and imploded than the Clos de la Roche. A distinctly dark, even youthfully brooding style for Clos Saint-Denis but with excellent depth and juicy lift. Finishes firm and long. This wine is going to require patience.

    Slightly medicinal on the nose. Supple and fresh and with Morey’s energy and finesse. Slightly bitter-cherry note. Very youthful.

Region

Clos Saint-Denis

Tucked between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, and sharing the same stratum of limestone, Morey-St-Denis is unfairly less celebrated than its better known neighbours. It boasts five Grand Crus, including Clos-St-Denis. Slightly lighter than Clos-de-la-Roche, Clos Saint-Denis' wines balance delicacy, finesse and wonderful Pinot fruit - the quintessential Grand Cru of Morey-St-Denis.
