(AG91-93+ points) Graphite, pencil shavings, plums and mint are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2012 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de La Bussière.

(AG91-93+ points) Graphite, pencil shavings, plums and mint are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2012 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de La Bussière. A cool, reticent Burgundy, the 2012 impresses for its persistence, delineation and intensity. Although Christophe Roumier's wines are highly sought all over the world, the Clos de la Bussière remains the most under the radar wine in this range. I wouldn't open a bottle before its tenth birthday, as this is a wine that has always repaid cellaring. I expect that will be the case again within the 2012. This is a fabulous showing, Stylistically, the Clos de la Bussière is classic Morey in its pure power.

Opulent and dense, with vivid acidity driving the black cherry, plum and spice flavors. This picks up a stony note on the long, muscular finish. Impressive, but needs time. Best from 2017 through 2030. — B.S.

The very pure and sappy nose jumps from the glass in a fine blend of black cherries, sweet blackberries, cocoa, woodsmoke, dark soil tones, a touch of coffee bean and a gentle topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and pure, with lovely elegance on the attack, a fine, sappy core, excellent transparency, fine-grained tannins and outstanding length and grip on the focused and tangy finish. This is excellent. (Drink between 2022-2050)

Burghound - Burghound, January 2015
A brooding but well-layered nose combines notes of both red and dark currants, earth, floral tones and a hint of the sauvage. The rich and unusually supple mediumbodied flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration... A brooding but well-layered nose combines notes of both red and dark currants, earth, floral tones and a hint of the sauvage. The rich and unusually supple mediumbodied flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in a more refined finish than usual that delivers excellent length and only a trace of rusticity. I have said this several times recently but since 2009 this wine has become noticeably more interesting. 2022+

91+ Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune.

The 2012 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière from Christophe Roumier from has a brisk and lively bouquet with briary, blackberry and sous-bois notes, detailed and precise with subtle use of oak that feels discrete, yet gives the aromas lift. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe, slightly soft tannin. There is just the right amount of dryness here, but it needed just a little more backbone and drive towards the finish. Though not as stellar as it showed from barrel, I suspect this will find its mojo with a few more years in bottle. - Neal Martin

Stephen Tanzer - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, March 2015
Deep medium red. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at roasted cherry and raspberry. Concentrated and tangy in the mouth, showing an intriguing saline quality and good medicinal reserve to its soil-inflected wild berry... Deep medium red. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at roasted cherry and raspberry. Concentrated and tangy in the mouth, showing an intriguing saline quality and good medicinal reserve to its soil-inflected wild berry flavors. More powerful than the village Chambolle, showing a comparatively rustic quality to its chewy, granular tannins. In an earthier style and tough going today. 90+
