Initially a dominant green nose made the wine unappealing. But in the mouth, the texture was fine, fruit was a mixture of red and black and the length was sufficient. Most of it was left till the next day. The nose was still very different. Today, the green tinge had subsided. It was more brambly, almost with blackberries, and caramel! The fruit was still present, but there was nothing memorable here.
Drinking something different with Mario at ViaVélez (General Perón con Zorita in Madrid) after that Rioja tasting event. Thinking at first it was le Grand Cru (so bad...) this was what it is, an unpersonal Burgundian wine. A PN for civil servants. Let me explain: Everybody think Morey-St.Denis has lower personality among Cote d´Or. I have to agree. Closed nose, far away from a fragant wine. Palate is meaty and woody. A ugly surprise for a 06. However, it had that bitter finish I really love. Nothing spectacular neither to be remembered.
Bebiendo algo diferente con Mario en ViaVélez después de la cata de Rioja en Barolo. Al principio pensaba que era el Crand Cru (qué mal...) pero esto era lo que es, un borgoñón impersonal. Un PN para funcionarios. Deja que me explique: Todo el mundo piensa que Morey-St.Denis tiene el perfil más bajo dentro de la Cote d´Or. Tengo que estar de acuerdo. Nariz cerrada, lejos de lo que es un vino fragante. La boca es cárnica y amaderada. Una fea sorpresa para un 06. Sin embargo, tuvo ese amargo final que me gusta. Nada espectacular ni para ser recordado.
