Domaine Arlaud uses 100% destalking, cool pre-maceration, pumping over and new wood of varying proportion. Together with low yields his wines are thus normally of excellent quality. This Morey St Denis comes from a small plot called "Aux Chesaux" (1,5 ha) out of which Arlaud owns half it. Morey St Denis is stuck between Chambolle Musigny to the south (elegancy) and Gevrey-Chambertin (powerful) to the north. The wine is thus a bit like a "full bodied" Chambolle. The colour is medium red with purple rim, similar to those of Chambolle. The nose is wonderful and elegant with sweet raspberries, dark fruit,vanilla and flowers. Simply great stuff. The taste is dancing wonderfully on a thin line towards lovely fruit, soft tannins, perfect balance and long velvety finish. What can I say? Nothing wrong with being stuck in between Chambolle and Gevrey.... Morey St.Denis 1er cru "Aux Cheseaux" High price 449 worth every penny...cause heaven is not far away!
