The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru is expressive on the nose with dark berry fruit, sous-bois, just a touch of tobacco. The palate is medium bodied with a sweet entry, ripe red cherry mixed with allspice and white pepper, segueing into a quite a concentrated finish with a long spicy after that might deceive you into think there are stems here. One of my picks from Taupenot-Merme this year. 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. The aging period is adapted to preserve the fruit (from 15 to 18 months). ABV 13.5%
