TASTING NOTES

"The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru has a taut, crisp, well-defined bouquet with just a hint of boot polish that actually complements the mélange of red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, offering sappy black fruit laced with white pepper, and nicely proportioned, providing satisfying freshness and composure toward the sustained finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Initially there is a whiff of reduction present but aggressive swirling eventually liberates an exuberantly fresh nose that blends notes of earth, spice and floral elements with those of various red berry fruit scents. The rich, round and beguilingly delicious middle weight flavors possess a highly seductive mouthfeel thanks to the abundant dry extract that serves to buffer the ripe tannins on the lingering and well-balanced if more obviously structured finish. This powerful yet refined effort will also require at least a few years of patience." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte opens in the glass with a pretty nose of sweet cherry, warm spice and strawberry. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a chalky chassis of tannin, bright acids and a firm, grippy finish." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236
