Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The 2010 Morey St. Denis Les Faconnieres saturates every corner of the palate with tremendous depth in its fruit. It possesses striking minerality, which serves to balance some of the wine’s more overt, bold tendencies. The high percentage of clay in this site gives the wine its broad shoulders. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. ||Virgile Lignier began his harvest on September 24. Potential alcohols came in between 11.8 and 14%. The wines under 12.5% were lightly chaptalized by about a half degree. I tasted all of the 2010s from tank, where they were resting in anticipation of bottling, which was scheduled to start this January. Virgile Lignier told me he was quite surprised by the quality of the 2010s, especially the ripeness of the tannins.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet, various American importers, including: Polaner Selections, Mt.
