- ABV 12.5%
- Closure: Cork
Cyprien Arlaud, who directs this domaine which owns 15 ha and farms a total of 18 ha, describes 2014 as a vintage that “finally had a good and even flowering that ultimately gave us pretty good yields and in any event the best since 2009. In fact I did a green harvest for the first time since 2004. The growing season was decidedly advanced and I thought that we might have an end of August beginning of September harvest, but the cooler and wet July and August conditions slowed the vegetative cycle. As to the topic of the vintage regarding the Suzukii problem we had almost zero trouble save for a parcel of young vines in Charmes-Chambertin where the berries had thinner skins. We chose to begin picking on the 16th of September and there was surprisingly little sorting necessary as the fruit was clean and ripe. Potential alcohols were in the 12 to 12.5% range and I chaptalized a few wines in order to have 12.5% as that is sufficient in my view. In terms of the vinifications I used a small amount of whole clusters in the 1ers and grands crus, which is to say between 20 and 30%. I really like the style of the wines and if the summer weather had been normal I am convinced that 2014 would have been a truly great vintage'
Reduction presently dominates the nose though there is good freshness and drive to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that possess solid depth and length on the mildly rustic finale. This should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age.

The 2014 Morey Saint Denis Villages, which is matured in used wood, was showing just a little reduction on the nose. The palate has a pretty entry with blackcurrant and strawberry pastille, with the tannins just showing a touch of coarseness at the moment -- though they should be straightened out by the time of bottling. Give it a year or two once in bottle
