Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AM=92 A distinctly airy, cool and pure mix is comprised by aromas of red currant, earth and game that exhibits discreet floral and wood nuances. There is both fine volume and intensity to the punchy middle weight flavors that are more refined than usual thanks to the fine grain of the supporting tannins on the attractively well-balanced and persistent if still linear finish. Not surprisingly, this is sufficiently firm to require at least another 5 years of cellaring and another 10 would not surprise me. WA=91 Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière has a lifted, charming bouquet with ample black plum, damson and incense aromas that gain vigor in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, delivering the structure and perhaps the masculinity you expect from a Morey-Saint-Denis, with a pinch of black pepper than enhances the finish. This is a well-crafted if maybe slightly conservative wine from Christophe Roumier...but still "yum yum." Tasted September 2017.
