The 2010 Morey St Denis Au Chezeaux caresses the palate with layers of dark cherries spices mint and licorice. This is an especially round sweet and generous style of Morey which is surprising considering it was made with 100% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. --- Antonio Galloni

Distinctive nose offers fresh mint minerals and peppery spices. Sweet and lush on entry then vibrant and energetic in the middle with perfumed flavors of small wild red fruits and pepper. Precise refreshing wine finishing with suave tannins and lovely aromatic persistence.

A wonderfully broad spectrum of aromas includes notes of black berry and cherry liqueur bramble and an intensely floral component all of which are trimmed in soft wood. There is excellent richness to the quite full-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration that helps to buffer the very firm and serious tannic spine on the moderately austere and 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. In contrast to the Faconnieres - while continuing in the theme Chez Lignier-Michelot of wonderfully sappy aromatics - this wine tends more towards the dark fruit spectrum with a plumy style and a touch of wood smoke. On the palate the sweetness and sappy style continues with a flat out lip-smacking personality that is simply wonderful to taste right now. There are some tannins to resolve but this too will be hard to resist young however it's not quite at the level of the Faconnieres.
