Remi Jeanniard's 2006 village level offering of Morey-Saint-Denis is very well made, good earth notes followed by brighter fruit with firm acidity, tannins and a nice finish. Needs some time to breath, give this wine a few hours in the decanter before serving
The great wines of Burgundy are uniquely complex, compelling and at times memorizing. Above all they are evocative, transformative but like all creatures, temperamental and anything but dependable. Two grapes dominate this agricultural masterpiece, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Both grapes achieve their greatest elegance when planted in cooler climates, to which Burgundy is the coolest and most Northern climate of all the major regions famous for red wines.
