All roads lead to Burgundy.
13 February 2016.
The Aux Cheseaux straddles a road. The western half of the climat is premier cru. To the east the climat is classified villages.
This Burgundy contains fruit from both but appellation laws dictate this wine is declared villages.
2013 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Morey-Saint-Denis Aux Cheseaux Villages
Pure pinot fruit. Restrained and classy. Slight spices and sweet pleasant meats. Complexity opens in the glass and the wine constantly evolves to reveal more.
Full mouth feel with terrific length. Balanced acid and tannins.
Great drinking now with real cellaring potential.
Punches above its villages weight. This is more premier cru than villages.
