Good dark red. Darker and more medicinal than the village Chambolle, offering aromas of black cherry, mocha and menthol. Densely packed and fine-grained, with its flavors of black cherry, menthol, minerals and licorice showing very good verve considering the wine’s low acidity (3.1 grams per liter). But then the pH here is a reasonable 3.41. This has turned out well.

The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière, which contains 50% whole bunch fruit, has a clean and precise, almost pixelated bouquet with blackberry, briary and cold limestone scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite structured in the mouth with filigree and tensile tannin. This is very focused, linear in style, which is surprising given the warmth during the growing season, with great clarity on the finish. This is just a fantastic Morey-Saint-Denis from Christophe Roumier.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
Tank sample. Monopole and less than 2 ha. South of Morey. Very Morey and lots of clay. Racy start and then very fine, even a little light at this stage, and then more obvious sandy tannins. Redcurrant fruit.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2040
