VIN90-92 The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Millandes 1er Cru came across very backward on the nose, gradually opening with black fruit and black olive/briny aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe black cherry and blueberry fruit, sweet and sorbet-fresh with a high-toned, yet focused finish that lingers long in the mouth. Very promising but it will require 3-4 years in bottle.
Estate Notes: Aromas of purple fruits and flowers, baking spices, light licorice. Medium-bodied and plush; harmonious. Hand-harvested. Partially destemmed; fermented on indigenous yeasts in cement tank. Aged in French oak barrels (20% new). Bottled unfined and unfiltered, according to the lunar cycle.
