Amiot Morey-St-Denis 1er cru “Ruchots” 2018


Morey St. Denis “Les Ruchots” lies on the other side of the village, next to Chambolle-Musigny and the Grand Cru Clos de Tart. It’s usually considered Morey-St-Denis’s best premier cru, and in 2018 it is a thoroughbred racehorse, classy and elegant. It has particularly nice balance and the promise of many years of pleasure.

There are the same aromas of plum, dark cherries and violets, but they seem particularly well integrated. Burghound (88-91) found it “sleek, delicious and appealingly textured,” and we think he is right. This is top level Morey-St-Denis from an excellent vintage — a winning combination.
