Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Aux Cheseaux, 2013, Domaine Arlaud Tasting Notes:

Note: from 30+ year old vines

Secondary fermentation aromas presently dominate the nose and render it unreadable. By contrast there is excellent freshness and verve to the delicious and solidly concentrated flavors that possess excellent richness on the lightly mineral-inflected finish where an array of soil undertones appears.

This is deceptively structured as the abundant dry extract pushes the tannins to the background. Patience required.

Score: 90-92 / 2023+
