La Riotte (1er Cru), Morey-St-Denis, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Ready 2019 – 2029
- Unit Volume
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Morey Saint Denis is the forgotten vineyard amongst the great names on the Cote de Nuits. Nuits-St-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanee – they all have their devotees, but rarely Morey. So the wines are worth looking out for – they are often just as good as their more renowned neighbours.
La Riotte is a Premier Cru vineyard right next to the village itself, on the east side.
Producer: Romain Taupenot is the 7th generation of his family to run the estate. They are based in Morey-St-Denis, neighbouring Chambolle-Musigny, but have vineyards in 20 appellations in several villages. In total they have 13 hectares under vine.
Cellar Potential: Ready now.
Old Bridge Rating: This is now perfectly mature – gentle, spicy and charming.
