Tasting some solid guys between Chambolle-Musigny and Gevery Chambertin – 5 Morey St Denis (symbols of MSD are the wolves). The very typical soil of Morey is a mix of red-brown clay soil mixed with small rocks over a base of limestone but certainly depends on the position of parcels. I don’t suppose there is a definitive style in all MSD and won’t be too smart to say it will the average blend of Chambolle and Gevery. Great that today attend a small tasting to explore few of them again.
MSD today seems much more bolder, denser and earthier compare to their neighbors. 2009 Roumier Morey St Denis 1er Cru Bussiere seems to be the most welcomed one amongst the guests (the bottle that emptied most quickly if it is a self pouring is always a good sign) while I personally prefer the aroma of 2005 Fourrier Morey St Denis Clos Solon VV, (light, easy, good cherry and earthy, refined finish) (90/100), and the taste of 2005 L & A Lignier Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Chaffots, elegant, complex and full of things to explore in a sip (92/100). Anyone want to get some of these producer’s Morey St. Denis, Go look up Ginsberg+Chan in their new central shop.
