… but someone usually hands me a glass of something good once I’ve got my breath back. Oh yes, oh yes, it is another offering from Morey St Denis, not my favourite producer there (which is Domaine Dujac), but as [link2post id=”I 1620″]have suggested in the past[/link2post], a damned good producer.
Morey St. Denis Premier Cru Les Loups 1999, Domaine des Lambrays
Ah… Lovely, pretty fruit. Quite ripe, but it does not hold back in the ‘lovely’ department. It is a bit closed at the moment, so I shall not be opening my mag of 1999 Clos des Lambrays for some time. The tightness gives it a degree of restraint that this did not have when I last tried it, then it was during its opulent, expressive and hedonistic young stage. But the degree of loveliness here is not to be underestimated. No over-ripe HP Sauce character at all, this is pure, lovely, ripe Pinot from a Burgundy village that makes beautiful wine. This once again demonstrates the wonderfulness of elegant Burgundy, and I really love it. Shame it is only a half bottle.
