The 2010 Morey St. Denis Vieilles Vignes comes across as floral and ethereal in large part owing to the use of 50% whole clusters. Sweet spices and rose petals add complexity on the layered finish. Anticipated maturity:... The 2010 Morey St. Denis Vieilles Vignes comes across as floral and ethereal in large part owing to the use of 50% whole clusters.

This is quite ripe yet remains quite fresh and even has pretentions to a certain elegance due to the really lovely violet spice and plum aromas.

This is quite ripe yet remains quite fresh and even has pretentions to a certain elegance due to the really lovely violet spice and plum aromas. The relatively round and supple medium-bodied flavors offer fine complexity before terminating in a mouth coating cool dusty firm and relatively linear finish. I very much like the balance of structural elements against the weight of the mid-palate and this should make for an excellent villages. - Comments: Outstanding ♥

17/20 Really bright, vibrant, energising fruit. Brilliant luminescence. Not so lengthy as the Rue de Vergy though. (RH)

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. Again there is a certain jammy quality to the wine here with the fruit tones leaning a bit more to the black fruit spectrum: black cherry jam and such. The palate too is ripe and almost lush but there's a bit more tannin to bring in the focus on the long and satisfying finish. It's just as approachable now (as the Chambolle VV) and will be hard to resist young.
