Morey Saint Denis Millandes Heresztyn 2020, fine burgundy, 65 year old vines, 1800 bottles produced, ripe, full and with immense ageing potential.  I liked the description of a friend here far better than anything I could come up with so here it is… certainly made my mouth water on this cold January evening….

The Morey-Saint-Denis 1er cru Les Millandes is one of the best we have tasted. From 65-year-old vines and low yields (37hl/ha) this vivid ruby, red wine has a stunning bouquet of myrtle, blackberries, sloes and bramble not to mention floral notes of violets and jasmine, a sustained palate with exquisite finesse and length. One to age and to drink with guinea fowl with cabbage, rabbit in mustard sauce and cheese (Epoisses, Munster, Livarot etc.)

An estate founded by a former Polish vineyard worker of Louis Trapet. Domaine Heresztyn has been one of the consistently fine producers in Gevrey Chambertin. However, as Florence Heresztyn increasingly takes the reins, they have clearly reached another level of quality. The vineyard is now undergoing conversion to biodynamic viticulture. These are wonderful glossy precocious wines with eloquent cherry and bilberry fruit and a certain stoniness that betokens good ageing potential. Plenty of energy, vinosity and concentration here. Wines for cellaring and for gathering in vintages, prices are pretty high but then where are not now for good Burgundy.
