Mid cherry red. Dark-red fruit. This has a dry, chalky texture that strikes more than the fruit on the palate, but the fruit is there to re-emerge with time. At the moment it seems dry and a little severe on the palate. Hard work just now, rather muscular. Needs more time but it’s long. The vines here are 55 years old and Riotte, which lies in the heart of the village, is one of the best plots in Morey. He uses organic methods and focuses on expressing pure fruit flavours which display each terroir. Oak is used judiciously to avoid dominating the wines. Aging in oak barrels with 30 to 40% new barrels depending on the qualitative potential of each vintage. The aging period is adapted to preserve the fruit (from 15 to 18 months). ABV 13.5%
