Product Description

The domaine’s plot in “Ruchots” represents some of their oldest vines. Our take on this wine is that it’s a mini-Clos de la Roche given its close proximity to this hallowed vineyard as well as a similarity of terroir. The wine also presents a favorable quality/price ration given the scores and reviews below.

“The 2014 Morey St Denis 1er Cru les Ruchots has a pretty cassis and blackcurrant-scented bouquet that just needs to muster more energy by the time it finds itself in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, quite tensile tannin. I like the mineral nature of this wine. It is an austere Morey-Saint-Denis, but the energy simmers at its core. Give it 4-5 years in bottle to find its groove.” Wine Advocate 90-92 points.

“Bright red-ruby. Sexy iron and fresh blood notes on the reduced nose. Rich, broad and mouth-filling without any heaviness, thanks to strong minerality. The wine's red fruit flavors are under wraps today but show enough power and depth to support the serious, ripe tannins. For all its volume, this premier cru boasts terrific spine and energy. Arlaud told me that this cru "both eats and showcases the vintage," by which he means that it can mask a vintage's more obvious traits while presenting it to best advantage.” Tanzer 92-94
