2019 Marchand & Burch Morey-Saint-Denis Les Millandes Premier Cru
Out of stock
Morey-Saint-Denis is a commune and corresponding appellation in the Côte de Nuits subregion of Burgundy. The vast majority of production is Pinot Noir, with only a tiny amount of vineyard land planted to Chardonnay. Its position between the legendary neighbouring villages of Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny bears some telling relevance to the style and quality of its wines. There is a frank, lush fruitiness about a good Morey, often with dark earth and forest overtones.
A fragrant nose with bright red fruits, underpinned by cinnamon, mocha, and cumin spice as well as hints of forest floor. Plush and juicy strawberry flavours form an impression of sweetness that lends the palate richness that rolls into a textural raspberry finish. Scintillating red fruit meets savoury undertones of spice and earth generating a wine of great complexity and structure.
Pair alongside a hearty chicken and morel casserole with roast potatoes.
