"(picked at 13.7% potential alcohol): Pale yellow. High-toned aromas of pineapple, lemon oil and yellow stone fruits, accented by a touch of clove. Tactile and concentrated, offering impressively chewy flavors of pineapple, wet stone and spicy oak. Finishes long and slightly dry. Morey harvested these vines first in 2015 (on September 3), noting that "there was a lot of millerandage but no surmaturité." Incidentally, Morey told me that although he would move his 2015s into cuves prior to the 2016 harvest, he would probably wait until November to bottle most of his wines."

"From a parcel measuring .10 ha in Chassagne. There is enough wood to merit pointing out framing the notably ripe yet fresh aromas of various white orchard fruit, lavender, lemon and discreet spice elements. There is outstanding size, weight and richness to the broad-shouldered yet reasonably refined flavors that brim with dry extract on the lingering finish that isn't as complex as it usually is. Again, more depth will almost certainly develop but I have my doubts that it's going to be enough to elevate this to the next level."
