The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Aux Chezeaux comes from white clayey soils with a lot of hard limestone as the bedrock. This includes 80% whole cluster fruit. It has a refined and elegant bouquet with pressed rose petals infusing the scents of small red cherries, pomegranate and dried orange rind scents. This is perhaps more bashful than some of Virgile Lignier’s other 2015s. The palate is very fresh and vivacious on the entry with commendable depth and energy. The mineral component comes through strongly here, the finish quite powerful and with superb tension all the way through to the finish. Super-bon (as they say in these parts).
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038
