Morey St. Denis - Deep dive in 3 bottles
All wines tasted blind.
That’s 2nd time I taste this lovely 2012 1er Cru. Powerful, intense, ripe red berries over spices. Youthful character w/ amazing freshness & expressiveness. Drinks well now & will for 10+ yrs.
Grapes aren’t destemmed, fermented in steel, aged 18mo in 50% new barriques. Blend of younger vines from Clos de Lambrays w/ 1er Cru Clos Sorbet adjacent to the estate. Tiny production of 8-10K per year makes it a rare find. — 9 days ago
Remarkably intense flowery strawberry nose with little reflection of its age. Rich infused sweet tea flavors and gorgeous fruit that remains strong through the finish. — a year ago
Very good right after opening, and kept getting better and better. Elegant, delicate and smooth. — 22 days ago
Magnum 1998 Cheval Blanc. Third red for dinner at the house w B&K K, J&L B, and M&R H and BP. Awesome! So much fun to try this Bordeaux after the 2002 Domaine des Lambrays burgundy. This wine felt young, even though older than the Lambrays. A bit tight at first, despite decanting a few hours. Fun contrast of round vegetal and green noted, stronger tannins. Such a treat. Probably the fave of the night. — 2 years ago
I'm a really big fan of this flavor - Ripe strawberry. The Tanins are very subtle. Actually tasted even better the second day. — a year ago
