TASTING NOTES

"A pretty, cool and airy nose is comprised by aromas of maraschino cherry laced with both earth and a plethora of floral elements. The sleek, intense and wonderfully mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess an almost pungent salinity on the bitter cherry-inflected finish that flashes superb length. Like the Gevrey villages, if this can develop more depth with time in bottle this could be a knock-out." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte has a gentle, almost Chambolle-like bouquet with red cherries, wild strawberry and cranberry scents interwoven with wilted rose petal and freshly tilled soil. I admire the clear articulation of terroir here. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple, lithe tannin. The acidity is well judged and there is impressive depth, plenty of succulent red berry fruit laced with spice. I would like a little more tension on the finish but otherwise this is a fine La Riotte that I suspect will both be approachable and age well." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"Bright, dark red; these wines display brilliant Pinot colors. Knockout carnal perfume combines cherry, iron, tobacco, menthol and licorice along with classic Morey-Saint-Denis brown spices. Juicy and intense but rather bound-up in the early going, with its dark cherry, licorice, mint and iron flavors conveying a slightly medicinal character; an element of dried herbs adds another dimension. Finishes with a serious but fine dusting of tannins and excellent length and lift. This will need time in bottle." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
