2012 Robert Gibourg Morey St Denis Clos De La Bidaude

"(this is a monopole within La Bidaude which sits directly above Clos des Lambrays). A gentle hint of wood sets off notably ripe but agreeably fresh dark cherry, plum and cassis aromas that are nuanced by hints of spice and earth. There is fine volume and concentration to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating dry extract on the moderately robust finish. This is muscular but not really rustic and this should age beautifully or, if given an hour of air it could even be approached now. A quality Morey villages." [+]
