The 2009 Morey St. Denis Les Faconnieres shows striking depth. It is one of the more clenched Moreys in this lineup. A persistent vein of minerality gives the wine its focus and pointed personality. The intensity of the fruit peeks through occasionally, but this really needs at least another few years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. ||Virgile Lignier’s 2009s show notable intensity and ripeness, but also preserve quite a bit of freshness through the use of whole clusters, which reach as much as 100% in two wines. The Bourgogne and Chambolle were bottled in December 2010. I tasted all of the other wines from tank. Bottling was scheduled for the end of March 2011. Readers will find notes on a handful of 2008s on www.erobertparker.com.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet, various American importers, including : Polaner Selections, Mt. Kisco, NY; tel.
