Serafin Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Millandes
Price: $106.89 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
A slightly more generous application of wood still allows the ripe and fresh aromas of plum, cassis, earth and soft floral scents to shine. There is fine intensity to the tautly muscular and well-delineated flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration before culminating in a powerful, explosive and overtly robust finish that stops just short of being rustic. This is a big and very serious wine that is clearly going to require extended cellaring.

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Les Millandes has an attractive and ample bouquet with blackberry, cedar and a touch of licorice, well defined and quite forthright. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, well judged acidity with firm backbone and impressive tension on the masculine finish. Give this 3-4 years and you should have a very admirable Morey-Saint-Denis. Tasted September 2016.

Dark red with ruby highlights. Soil-driven aromas of dark fruits, mocha, brown spices and underbrush, plus a whiff of white pepper; I might have guessed this was vinified with a portion of whole clusters but Sérafin destems all of his fruit. Plump and sweet in the middle yet with a medicinal coolness to its flavors of black cherry, mint and pepper. Finishes with substantial, slightly rustic tannins and lingering sweetness. Seems less ripe than some of the other crus here.
