  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (from purchased grapes from 40-year-old vines; aging in three 350-liter barrels, one of them new; destemmed): Healthy bright red. Ripe aromas of dark raspberry and brown spices. In a rather fat, full style, with its volume reflecting the clay soil. An attractive plump wine but less aromatic and shapely than the Baudes. Finishes with a broad dusting of tannins.

    The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Les Blanchards was completely destemmed and matured in 342-liter barrels. It has a very composed bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cranberry leaf and tobacco aromas all neatly intertwined. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe redcurrant and cranberry fruit on the entry, quite saline in the mouth that really get that saliva flowing toward the finish. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle. At the moment it is not quite as expressive as Cyprien Arlaud's Les Blanchards, although it is not far off.
