Tasting Notes For Albert Bichot Morey-St-Denis Les Sorbets Premier Cru 2015
Morey-Saint-Denis is located in the Côte de Nuits, between Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south. Almost all of Morey-Saint-Denis's vines produce red Pinot Noirs. This appellation marks the transition between the rather masculine Gevrey-Chambertin wines and the feminine typicity of Chambolle-Musigny. "Les Sorbets" linked at an altitude of 250 meters. The soil is brown and clayey overlying hard Bathonian limestone and contains Upper Bajocian marls and stony scree. The name "Les Sorbets" refers to the rowan trees (sorbiers) that were commonly found here. The trees are appreciated for their orange berries, flowers and wood.
On the nose, our Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru "Les Sorbets" is redolent of wild sour cherry with notes of leather and a hint of oak. It acquires more complex aromas with animal and spicy nuances when allowed to age. Well balanced on the palate and endowed with superb structure boasting flavors of red berries and liquorice. The finish is generous and deliciously fruity.
