- Tasting Notes
Here too there is mild reduction which renders the nose difficult to assess in depth though again the underlying fruit appears to be ripe. There is excellent volume, power and a taut muscularity to the concentrated and mineral-tinged medium weight flavors that culminate in an austere, backward and highly persistent finish. This is very old school in style and will require ample patience for it to develop, yet will be well worth the wait.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Morey Saint Denis Les Millandes 2011 has an assertive, dense blackberry, mulberry and tea leaf-scented bouquet that offers very good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is an earthy tincture that lends it masculine personality and a feisty, quite peppery finish that leaves the tongue tingling. The oak becomes more accentuated with time in bottle, although it retains admirable depth and cohesion.

Bright medium red. Black- and blueberry aromas are lifted by a floral quality. Juicy, tight and youthfully imploded, showing limited early fleshiness and sweetness. Flavors of herbs and brown spices are joined by salty minerality on the slightly dry-edged finish, which features dusty, chewy tannins. In an awkward stage today.
