Winemaker Notes

Graceful and feminine, this lovely premier cru unites aromas of mixed berries and soft fragrant flowers over a soft, supple palate. Complex, taut, energetic and restrained like a ballet dancer, this mineral-laden cuvee will be doing pirouettes for at least another decade to come. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Millandes 1er Cru includes around 25% whole clusters, matured in 35% new oak. It has a well-defined bouquet with touches of truffle and mushroom influencing the red berry fruit. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, light on its feet but long and tender on the finish. Excellent.
Barrel sample: 91-93
BH 92
Here there is no reductive funk as there is a lovely spiciness to the pure and airy floral-tinged red cherry and pomegranate aromas. There is better size and weight to the more muscular medium weight flavors that deliver good length on the robust, serious and more structured finale.
Barrel Sample: 89-92

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

While Morey-St-Denis of Burgundy might not get the same attention as its neighbors, Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south, there is no reason why it shouldn’t. The same line of limestone runs from the Combe de Lavaux in Gevrey—all the way through Morey—ending in Chambolle.

There are four grand cru vineyards, moving southwards from the border with Gevrey-Chambertin: Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Clos des Lambrays, Clos de Tart and a small segment of Bonnes-Mares overlapping from Chambolle. Clos de la Roche is probably the finest vineyard, giving wines of true depth, body, and sturdiness for the long haul than most other vineyards.

Pinot Noir from Morey-St-Denis is known for its deep red cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Aromas of spice, licorice and purple flowers are present in the wines’ youth, evolving to forest and game as the wine ages.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
