The 2015 Morey Saint Denis les Très Girard suffered some grillure on the “younger vines” (45 years old), although Cécile did not know why particularly in this location. It contains around 30% whole bunch fruit and offers a well-defined blueberry and raspberry-scented bouquet, a touch of incense developing with aeration. The palate has good backbone and comes across as quite structured for a village cru, though that is what you expect from any self-respecting Morey-Saint-Denis. I appreciate the confit-tinged finish that just needs to develop a little more persistence on the aftertaste to match the excellent 2014 from last year.

Healthy dark red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of red berries, spices and game. In a rather soft, sweet, rich style, with red fruit flavors complemented by mocha, milk chocolate and spices. This nicely broad village wine finishes with slightly dusty tannins and very good length, with just enough limestone lift. Should give early pleasure.
Just next to her new winery. Chalk under 40 cm of soil. Very sweet and almost liquoreux . Thick! For those who want to wallow in a bath of Pinot Noir. Maybe just a little more freshness wouldn’t come amiss? Just a tad heavy on the end.
