Monopole. Less than 2 ha. South of Morey. Very Morey and lots of clay. Spicy and crystalline. Juicy and some richness with crunchy, sandy tannins. Super charming.

“Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière has a lifted, charming bouquet with ample black plum, damson and incense aromas that gain vigor in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, delivering the structure and perhaps the masculinity you expect from a Morey-Saint-Denis, with a pinch of black pepper than enhances the finish. This is a well-crafted if maybe slightly conservative wine from Christophe Roumier…but still “”yum yum.”” Tasted September 2017.”
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032
Bright dark red Open-knit aromas of raspberry, brown spices and chocolate Densely packed and velvety for the vintage and for the cru, with red berry, brown spice and iron flavors complemented by a salty quality This rich, rather pliant 2014 finishes with excellent length and smooth tannins While it should offer considerable early appeal, it also has the stuffing to age
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2027
