Lignier Michelot - Morey St Denis en la Rue de Vergy 2011
Tasting Notes and Scores
From Virgile's two hectares of vines, the 2011 Morey St. Denis En La Rue de Vergy has 20% whole cluster bunches. It offers a perfumed bouquet with dark cherries, bergamot and a touch of violet. The palate is soft and rounded with well-integrated oak. There is not a rough edge in sight here with a velvety, sensual finish that has great volume. Drink now-2020.

This is ripe to the point of displaying liqueur-like aromas of plum and blue berry with subtle spice and wet stone hints. There is an equally opulent and textured mouth feel to the round and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of palate coating dry extract, all wrapped in a sappy, balanced and persistent finish. Drink: 2016+
