Tasting Notes

Vinous 91

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de la Bussiere 1er Cru has quite a straightforward bouquet of raspberry and cranberry fruit, pleasant sous-bois aromas percolating through with time. This gains complexity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity and chiseled tannins, but it feels a little attenuated on the finish. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting. [Neal Martin, 18/01/2022]

Robert Parker 91

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussiere is a real success, and decidedly reminiscent of the domaine’s excellent 2007. Offering up aromas of sweet red berries, warm spices, peony and subtle soil tones, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a fine core of fruit that cloaks its rich but fine-grained tannic chassis. While it’s an elegant rendition of the Clos de la Bussiere, this always needs bottle age. [William Kelley, 25/12/2018]

JancisRobinson.com 18/20

Monopole of less than 2.59 ha (6.4 acres). Monopole since the 12th century. Opposite the entrance to Dujac. Bought in the 1950s by Christophe’s grandad. Not in good nick so he started to renew it in 1955 and last phase of renewal was 1994. South of Morey. Lots of clay. 25% new barrels, 45% whole bunch. Barrel sample. Pure and slightly peppery dark fruit. So coaly on the palate, dark layers of sober fruit, utter beauty without any show. Perfect restraint. More compact than the Chambolle. So moreish and without flirtatiousness. Serious and seriously beautiful. Gorgeous. (JH) [29/11/2018]
