(vinified with 50% whole clusters): Medium red. Soil-driven aromas of mocha, earth and smoky, rocky minerality. Ripe and sweet, with a pungent mineral spine and sound acidity intensifying the wine’s red fruit flavors. Finishes with good mineral energy.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2024

The 2013 Morey Saint Denis les Tres Girard has an enticing bouquet that is very well defined: blackberry, flint and wet rocks – like the Bourgogne Rouge expressing the mineral core over the fruit. The palate is underpinned by fine tannins, quite reserved for a Morey Saint Denis but with fine tension and mineral notes toward the finish.
