Ready to drink, this medium bodied wine was rich with fruit backed by a nice beam of cherry. The tannins are fully resolved. What is really compelling about this wine is how rich and silky smooth it is. A terrific pour that is ready to drink now.
My first time trying this wine, and it did not disapoint. Sweet, slightly tart cherry fruit dominated with a beautiful background of smoky underbrush, spice, and graphite. A wine that I would have been satisfied just smelling through the night! My only knock would be that it was a little dusty on the finish, but overall was a very good wine.

(Frederick Magnien Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru "Les Ruchottes") I am not a big Magnien fan but always love this bottling from him. I bought three bottles of this and this was my last. Loved the first two but have not had it since release. This was just as I remembered but easily the best showing of the three bottles. Great nose of exotic spices, cinnamon, wet earth, some sweet greens (nettles?), and wonderful floral aromas. Great nose. Mature and no sign of any over-oaking. Some other bottles from Magnien that I have tried have had too much oak. This had nary the slightest hint. Palate was very velvety but had that classix Morey spice weaving through it. Tannins were present but ripe and sweet. A great showing for this and a great drink today. What I love about this wine is that it is just so classic and unmistakeably Morey with all of its exotic spice notes.
(Fredrick Magnien Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru “Les Ruchots”) Morey perfume in full effect. Spice, cinnamon, clove, minerals on the aroma tic nose. Truncuated on the finish but with nice length and a sappy fruit. Young as ever. This has gone into a resting mode. Great potential. Open again in five years.
