Amiot Morey-St-Denis 1er cru “Millandes” 2012
This lot of 2012 Millandes comes with impeccable provenance — it just arrived last week from Morey-St-Denis, having spent the last six years in the cellar where it was bottled. When he tasted it back in 2015, Burghound gave 91 points and called it “outstanding” and “lovely,” finding it “supple and round but well detailed.”
We think he’d be even more enthusiastic now. Today it’s just magnificent — the nose is woodsy and perfumed, with cool cherry fruit and lovely notes of anise and cinnamon. The mouth is perfectly balanced, with reserved tannins underlying a round, elegant, mouthfilling palate showing notes of blackberry pie and autumn leaves.
