    ($140) Good deep red. Complex briary aromas of cherry, brown spices, mocha and menthol. Quite suave and fine-grained on the palate, with harmonious acidity and a minty note framing the sexy, soil-driven flavors of red fruits, dried flowers and peppery spices. Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely subtle lingering perfume. |The Musigny of Morey,| says Cyprien about this grand cru, which needs time in bottle to put on weight and express itself. This was close to 13% natural alcohol, making it the ripest 2006 here along with the Ruchots.

    A pungent nose of dark berry fruit, spice hints, vegetal notes and earth nuances leads to rather supple middle weight flavors that possess a dusty texture on the moderately firm finish. This wine has a history of putting on weight in the bottle and thus my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will do so. If it doesn't, this is still a classy and refined wine that may be considered a touch on the lighter side for a Morey grand cru.

  • The dedication of the Arlaud family - father Herve, son Cyprien and daughter Bertille - has substantially improved this domaine each year. Their labor-intensive practices of hand pruning, stringent green harvesting and the use of a horse and plow instead of a tractor have produced the finest wines of the domaine's history.

    The wines are textbook expressions of each terroir and are remarkably complex and richly balanced. Look for the domaine to continue to build its strong reputation in vintages ahead.
