2019 Morey-Saint-Denis En La Rue De Vergy, Bruno Clair

This remarkable village lieu dit sits directly above Bonnes Mares, Clos de Tart, and Clos des Lambrays. The Clair parcel is situated just above their Bonnes Mares parcel. Up here there is virtually no top soil at all, and the vines plunge straight into the limestone bedrock. The wine has a dark-fruited depth, with a tannin structure that feels so sumptuous and silky. It’s hard to believe this isn’t a premier cru.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Morey Saint-Denis En La Rue Vergy offers a mixture of red/black fruit on the nose, touches of singed earth and sous-bois developing with time. The palate is very harmonious and smooth with beautifully integrated oak. Sumptuous dark cherry fruit mixed with orange zest and blueberry, very silky towards the elegant finish. Superb.
