This one continues to be a sleeper pick, from adjacent to the Clos de la Roche, and with a particularly pretty and suave character….I love this stuff. Get some….

“Greater depth of purple and the nose is certainly fine, plump fruit with energy and no sacrifice of precision. Vibrant raspberry with a ripe citrus note as well, good clean tannins and a fresh finish, very lightly peppery. Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: November 2022.” 92-94 Jasper Morris “Four Star” wine

“The 2021 Morey-Saint-Denis Mont Luisants 1er Cru contains around 10-15% whole bunches and was aged in 50% new oak. The bouquet is very floral at the moment, with iris flower and violet infusing the black cherry and bilberry fruit – one of the most floral amongst Maxime Chuerlin’s range. The palate is very well-balanced with a succulent entry. It is fresh and taut, gaining intensity with aeration and sorbet-fresh on the lingering finish. Excellent.” 92-94 Neil Martin
