Meo Camuzet Morey St. Denis

2014 Meo Camuzet Morey St. Denis...$61.99
A very round wine that opens up easily and is really quite charming, even. Could that be the influence of the terroirs of Chambolle-Musigny, not far away?  The vines are middle-aged but productive, nonetheless, tending to give quite big grapes. A great deal of vigilance is called for, but it is rewarded, as the ripening is excellent.   There are two plots, one situated ‘en Chenevery” and the other "au Clos Solon”, two lieux-dits in the centre of the village, just below the premiers crus. An excellent situation, therefore, for a village appellation: Morey shares with Gevrey the characteristic of having plots classified as village appellations on the eastern side of the D974, although that's not the case for us.
