...outstanding...possesses admirable sweetness, medium to full body, plenty of jammy black fruits...sweet mid-palate, and the vintage's tannic clout noticeable in the wine's finish...the balance is present...elegant, concentrated...

Big, ripe, rich, beautifully complex and spicy nose merges seamlessly with medium weight, elegant, nicely detailed flavors of exceptionally good length and gorgeous balance. The flavors are quite textured and precise if not especially powerful or deep and this gets its marks more from grace and complexity than depth or power.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Morey-St.-Denis, Clos St.-Denis

Clos St.-Denis is a 16-acre Grand Cru vineyard in the Morey St.-Denis appellation in Northern Burgundy. In fact the village of Morey St.-Denis gets part of its name from this vineyard. In 1927 the village voted to add St.-Denis to Morey. Like its neighboring Grand Cru vineyards, Clos St.-Denis is rocky, well-drained, and composed largely of limestone and pebbles. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that three of “the greatest Burgundies I have ever tasted” came from this vineyard. (They were produced by Dujac, Ponsot and Georges Lignier.) The largest landholders are Georges Lignier, with 3.7 acres; Dujac, with 3.68 acres; and Drouhin, with 1.8 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
