The 2010 Morey St. Denis Les Faconnieres saturates every corner of the palate with tremendous depth in its fruit. It possesses striking minerality which serves to balance some of the wine's more overt bold tendencies. The high percentage of clay in this site gives the wine its broad shoulders. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. --- Antonio Galloni

This is the most complete of these Morey 1ers with a superbly complex nose that combines a number of floral elements together with spiced plum and red berry liqueur aromas. There is that wonderful inner mouth perfume to the detailed and notably powerful middle weight flavors where the supporting structural elements are phenolically mature all wrapped in a backward and distinctly austere finish. This will need time to shed its youthful awkwardness but this should be excellent in time. - Comments: Outstanding ♥

(50% vendange entier): Good bright dark red. Very ripe black fruits and peppery spices on the nose; distinct hints of surmaturite.

Very ripe black fruits and peppery spices on the nose; distinct hints of surmaturite. Big sweet ripe and rich; in a rather powerful mouthfilling style but manages to avoid coming off as heavy. Really saturates the mouth with dusty tannins on the persistent finish...

Advancements Chez Lignier-Michelot include a move to agriculture Biologique as well as the use of a higher percentage of whole clusters during vinification. These changes resulted in both brilliant colors as well as striking aromatic profiles throughout the range for 2010. The Chambolles all displayed brilliant ruby robes while the Moreys and Grand Crus offered visual tones leaning more toward garnet. Another old vine parcel (60 year old vines from just next to Millandes) that offers an absolutely room filling bouquet of strawberry compote and red raspberry liqueur - this aromatic profile is quite nearly Clos Saint Denis in style. The palate follows through on the promise from the bouquet and includes jammy red raspberries allied to classic and classy minerality. A wow wine not to be missed.
