My first taste of this Morey-Saint-Denis producer. I like Morey a lot, and this will do just fine as a basic offering.
Morey-Saint-Denis ‘En La Rue De Vergy’ 2007, Domaine Lignier-Michelot
The nose has some good pure fruit, with an edge of that 2007 fleshiness. It smells attractive, and quite Morey in character, but it is not amazingly complex. We approve of it being Morey-ish, though. There is nice fruit on the palate but the acidity is a little high. Again, it is not the most complex wine I’ve ever tasted. This has enough character to keep it interesting and reasonably charming as a village-level wine, but it is not really anything special. To be drank when it is in this lovely stage of slightly fleshy fruitiness, I feel, but then I like young Burgundy. Go on, enjoy that Morey loveliness!
