2002 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Riotte
Riotte is one of the best of Morey`s numerous but often unknown 1ers Crus. It sits in the heart of the village and tends to be a perfect expression of the character of the appellation. This 2002 still shows some youth but there is plenty of spicy, red fruit character throughout and a consistency and harmony that runs from start to finish. Drink from 2015
The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, very fine tannins, pure, dark berry fruit with a touch of sous-bois. Yet what really elevates this wine is the precision on the finish, that almost disarming clarity. This comes highly recommended - the best ever produced at the domaine. 92-94 pts” Neal Martin.
