Sale price ($) 1.77

A small vineyard just below the village, Romain’s La Riotte is a true expression of Morey-Saint-Denis. Spice on the nose, both sweet from the 30% new oak, but also more peppery, savoury. There is depth to the dark fruit and minerality on the gently muscular palate, whilst mouth filling volume returns that spiciness to the back palate.

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.
