Anne et Hervé Sigaut - Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru 'Les Millandes' 2020


the vine stocks yield small, very concentrated grapes. A winemaker's dream. This cuvée is the perfect illustration of the importance of the plant when it comes to wine quality. Dark fruits coulis aromas. Density and harmony both round out the palate. A great pinot noir from Burgundy; complete and deep. A light balsamic aftertaste. Its aging potential, well over a decade, cannot be missed. To pair with tournedos.

Located close to the village of Morey-Saint-Denis, this premier cru is considered the most qualitative of the town. It shares a direct line of descent with its neighbor, Clos Saint Denis. 

"Here the nose is relatively firmly reduced so be sure to give it some air if you're tempted to try a bottle young in the interest of science. There is excellent size, weight and mid-palate density to the rich but nicely detailed, muscular and powerful flavors that also culminate in a youthfully austere, lingering and structured finale. Patience definitely recommended. Outstanding" – Allen Meadows, Burghound
