Morey St. Denis, Côte De Nuits

Domaine des Lambrays

Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The first of 4 Grand Crus from Morey Saint Denis. Tasted blind - knew the identities but not the order of service. Colour of mid Ruby - paler than the previous bracket from Gevrey Chambertin. A beautiful red fruited delicious palate easily of Grand Cru quality. Medium plus intensity with supple tannins even at this young age. — an hour ago

Domaine Dujac

Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The 3rd of 4 Grand Crus from Morey Saint Denis. Some tasters were good enough to identify the 2 Dujac Wines as numbers 2 and 3. Not as mouth filling or powerful as the Clos de la Roche but still rich wonderful and detailed covering fleshy fruits and earthy notes with a herbal nuance. — an hour ago

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The 2nd of 4 Grand Crus from Morey Saint Denis. Colour of deep Ruby - darker than the Lambrays. Quite a rich palate of M+ intensity. Great mouthfeel. At this point I wrote in my notes “ getting to the point of sensory overload. Let me tell you that 2016 is a great vintage for Red Burgundy “. A wonderful Clos de la Roche”. Worth purchasing as it is always better value than the Ponsot Clos de la Roche. — an hour ago

Domaine Robert Groffier

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Tawny and translucent. Cork came out too easy. This has a little stewiness to it on the nose. Has visual similarities to the CdBeze opened the other night but must have been ill-treated at some point in its life. Drank ok but the 96 Beze was better. — 7 days ago
