The 2015 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Aux Chezeaux was suffering a lot of reduction on the nose that made it difficult to read. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and good purity. Here the terroir does show and I appreciate the energy that filters through the mass of black fruit on the finish. It will need 4-5 years in bottle, but there is a palpable sense of energy and tension interwoven from start to finish.

Tasting note: Reduction. The intensely mineral-driven and beautifully well-detailed flavors possess a real sense of drive as well as excellent power that builds from the mid-palate back to the impressively balanced and wonderfully long finale. This is quite firmly structured yet manages to avoid falling over into austerity or rusticity; that said, this is not likely to be a good candidate for early consumption.
