Amiot Morey-St-Denis 1er cru “Millandes” 2013
The Amiot’s 2013 “Millandes” is in a beautiful place. The acidity, which was relatively high after bottling, has mellowed and matured — it now serves as beautiful foil for the gently softened fruits. The cherries and currants present in its early life have melted gracefully into plum jam, and now share the stage with a gorgeous array of secondary aromas — earth. cocoa, black pepper, mushrooms, and woods.
Burghound awarded 91 points, calling it “oustanding,” “suave and very round,” and finding “excellent richness.” Millandes is a premier cru vineyard just a few feet from the famous Grand Cru Clos de la Roche. And the exceptional terroir from which this wine springs has carried it magnificently, even in an “off” year.
