Amiot Morey-St-Denis 1er cru “Ruchots” 2016


From an acre of vines, the Amiot family makes just 200 cases of this wine per year. Their vines, planted in the 1950s, produce concentrated, intense red Burgundy. This wine is enough to prove that Morey-St-Denis is much more than just a stop between Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin. Its nose is dark and spicy, with hints of earth and smoke. The mouth is ripe, rich, and long, with blackberry and woodsy flavors. There’s enough structure to keep this aging beautifully for a decade.

BURGHOUND: “The exceptionally rich and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors are generous and relatively forward with plenty of sappy dry extract buffering the fairly firm and refreshing finish. Like Ruchots often is, this should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age yet reward up to a decade of cellaring.”
