Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Aux Cheseaux, 2012, Domaine Arlaud

Note: from 30+ year old vines

Reduction currently obliterates the fruit. By contrast there is good freshness and energy to the earthy and concentrated middle weight flavors that possess a touch of the sauvage that continues onto the firm and balanced finish that is not quite as complex as that of the Millandes, or at least not yet.

This is also relatively chewy and should reward 8 to 12 years of cellar time.
