Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Village, of which there is just three barrels this year, comes from Tres Girard. (Although the name is not used on the label because they...to quote their words...|forgot|. This has been rectified from 2016 onwards.) It offers plenty of dark berry fruit on the nose, boysenberry jam and bilberry, nicely defined with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin. There is good backbone here, fine tension with dense black cherry and blackberry fruit, leading to a foursquare, but nicely focused finish.Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
