  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    In contrast to the grand cru cuvée, this is made from 100% destemmed fruit. The glass bursts with juicy red berry flavours, with the aromatic immediacy you see in the best New Zealand Pinot Noirs, and the savoury tension of its Burgundy heart. 90% of the fruit comes from a plot just above the Clos in the mid-point of the village.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 88

    The 2016 Morey-Saint Denis Village, which was matured in one-third new oak, has a clean and pure bouquet with hints of blueberry and black cherries, pretty, almost Chambolle-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crunchy brambly red fruit tinged with white pepper and a pinch of soy, fanning out nicely on the easy-going and approachable finish. Drink 2019-2025

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 89

    A fresh, spicy and expressive nose reflects primarily notes of various red berries and a dollop of earth. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the detailed and fleshy middle weight flavors that terminate in an utterly delicious and appealingly refreshing finish. There is enough underlying structure to suggest that this should be at its best with 5 to 8 years of cellaring. Outstanding Top value. Drink: 2021+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 90

    Good medium red. Explosive nose combines red fruits, spices and flowers. Silky but also juicy and fresh, offering immediately delicious red berry and spice flavors and noteworthy inner-mouth energy. Spreads out horizontally on the back end. This is hard to spit even today.

This Morey Saint Denis domaine may have passed through various owners over the recent decades, but one noticeably steadfast mark on Burgundy’s landscape has been Thierry Brouin, making the wines at this iconic estate since 1979 until his retirement in 2017. His signature style of whole bunch vinification for the grand cru has carved an esteemed place for Thierry in Burgundy’s story. The domaine was recently purchase by Bernard Arnault of LVMH, and a new régisseur has been installed. Boris Champy has nearly 10 years’ experience in the Côte d’Or working at Louis Latour, and before that in California and Bordeaux. He and Thierry worked closely alongside each other in 2017, ensuring a smooth handover. Tantalisingly short of a monopole, the domaine owns 8.66 hectares of the 8.8 ha Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru in the heart of Morey Saint Denis. As well as the substantial Clos, the domaine also has vines in premier cru and village sites within Morey, and added two small premier cru plots in Puligny Montrachet in the 1990s.Read less

Region

Morey Saint Denis

Morey St. Dénis often suffers from an identity crisis. They are more fruit forward than the wines of Gevrey Chambertin, yet more structured than those of Chambolle Musigny. It seems in this sensethat they are like middle children, always wanting to please yet not standing out as the noisy one or the notably quiet one. They are however crowd pleasers and for those who feel that Gevreys are too muscular and Chambolles too feminine; Moreys seem just right, offering velvety tannins and tangible fruit. The village offers five grand cru vineyards including Clos de la Roche, Clos St. Dénis and Clos des Lambrays which nonetheless can rival those of neighbouring villages in terms of quality (some even view them as the best in the Côte de Nuits) and various premier cru vineyards.
