94pts Jasper Morris

This includes the youngest vines (2000) of the grand cru declassified, which will account for 40% of the 1er cru. Delicious fresh mid purple, lovely strawberry notes, 50% whole bunch. Not massive, but detailed and balanced, a touch of spice behind, fruit is certainly on the soft side, a tannin or two and fair acidity.
Barrel Sample: 91-94

93pts Decanter

This Premier Cru Morey is produced from three parcels - Les Sorbets, Le Village and Les Riotte - located just below the grands crus. Half of the grapes are fermented as whole clusters and the wine is aged in 40% new casks. The result has notes of Havana cigar, spice and what director, Jacques Devauges, called 'vegetale noble' – the elegant menthol aromas from whole clusters. Less forward than the village wine, but more substantial, structured and intense.

93pts Burghound

Moderate wood frames the slightly more elegant if otherwise similar aromatic profile. On the palate there is more volume and richness to the delicious, textured and sappy medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a youthfully austere, mouth coating and sneaky long finish. Note that this excellent effort is sufficiently structured and well-balanced to reward a decade plus of cellaring.
