Morey Saint Denis Le Village Red 2018

Morey saint Denis Communale - 2018

  • PhilosophyFar-reaching memories: Niched between its two prestigious neighbours, Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis holds particular charm for the Delaunay family with whose growers it has always maintained faithful friendships. As a matter of fact, it was there that Laurent Delaunay had his first experience with vinification in 1983 and discovered these fragrant, powerful wines that feature characteristic notes of rose and violet.
  • TerroirThe grapes were handpicked and meticulously sorted so as to only retain the finest bunches of grapes, which were destemmed before being transferred to tanks. Daily punch-downs were performed during the vinification process. Barrel ageing lasted 18 months (1/3 new oak).

  • Tasting notesGorgeous deep red colour. The first nose is intense and complex, redolent of fruit (black cherry, raspberry), spices (coriander and paprika), incense, cherry bark and Russian leather, underscored by magnificent, elegant oakiness. Mentholated notes and scents of strawberry and cocoa follow. Lovely start to the palate, rich and powerful, still a little feisty, with pleasing ripe tannins. Fresh flavours of cherry, chlorophyll and coffee. The depth of the soil is reflected in the depth of the flavours. The fresh finish features notes of liquorice and burnt wood. This is a magnificent, rich, expressive wine boasting remarkable depth that will blossom over time.
