"The Morey St. Denis Premier Cru will also be an outstanding bottle in 2008, as the wine shares the same precision and transparency of the Morey AC in this vintage, with of course more depth and complexity. The bouquet offers up a very stylish mélange of red and dark plums, dark barriers, bitter chocolate, a lovely and complex base of soil and a touch of lead pencil from the new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and beautifully focused, with excellent nascent complexity, fine mid-palate depth and a very long, soil-driven finish that closes with tangy acids and very sophisticated tannins. A lovely bottle in the making. 2016-2040."
