Michel Gros Morey-St-Denis 2016


Clive Coates MW describes the wines of Morey as a cross between the silkiness of Chambolle-Musigny and the sturdiness of Gevrey-Chambertin. Gros’s Morey-St-Denis is closer to the Chambolle side, and shows an elegant mouthfeel that’s typical of his style. Its location 10 feet from Clos des Lambrays helps explain its unusual depth.

We found beautiful, dark blackberry fruit in this wine, with cool, ripe tannins. Morey-St-Denis’s signature mineral core is evident and delightful. Neal Martin, awarding 90 points, noted a “crunchy finish that is a joy,” and concluded, “this is on par with the 2015, and may even surpass it with age.”
