Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WA=88-90 The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard comes from purchased grapes that were completely destemmed. It has quite a spicy, lively bouquet that is simple but a bundle of joy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannin, more saline than some of the village Gevreys with the fine structure on the finish that just needs a touch more flesh to develop.
AM=87-90 Somewhat curiously this is aromatically more refined than either of the two Chambolle villages examples with its cool, pretty and airy nose of pomegranate, plum, violet, anise and soft earth nuances. The delicious, rich and relatively full-bodied flavours possess a seductive, even caressing mouth feel while delivering good length if only average depth on the delicious finish where a hint of rusticity appears.
