"A dense and chunky style, this red features a structure buried in layers of black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Intense, with licorice, sweet spice and mineral notes emerging on the long aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2042. 60 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Aux Chesaux 1er Cru offers an attractive mélange of mulberry, blackberry and subtle traces of blue fruit. It feels pure and quite generous. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline, almost briny entry and a powdery texture. This has one of the firmest backbones among the domaine’ Premier Crus, that brine-like element tangible all the way through to the masculine finish. Excellent, but one for those who love traditional Morey-Saint-Denis. " (VM)

" A notably floral-inflected nose features additional notes of red and dark cherry, spice, earth and a whiff of oak. Once again there is a marked contrast between the refined mouthfeel of the mid-palate and the finish that is somewhat tough and a bit green, short and bitter. It's hard to see this recovering though optimists could elect to cellar and see." (BH)

Winery Notes:
An ancient, rocky site that is home to the ruins of a Gallo-Roman villa. The vineyard sits on the northern border of Morey-Saint-Denis, touching grand cru Charmes-Chambertin. Soils here are particularly stony and rich in chalk. Vines planted in 1980.
