remoissenet 2005 morey 1er clos des ormes


Obviously made in quite a reduced style – so open an hour before drinking or dunk the contents of your bottle into the decanter.
2005 Remoissenet, Morey St.Denis 1er Clos des Ormestry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is rather deep, showing macerating dark-skinned cherry and just the faintest of dark oak is perfectly melded to it. After 10 minutes it smelled quite reduced, but another 10 minutes on it was clear. In the mouth there’s deep fruit and of understated intensity too – again the last accent is dark oak, but it’s not much and it’s a young wine. The acidity is good, and frankly the only negative is the slight spritz for the first 30 minutes it was open – after that it got better and better. The tannin is buried and the length is very good. I remember it not being not so cheap, but the quality is self evident. Leave a year+ to reduce that oak flavour…
Rebuy – Yes

    Bought a year or so ago from Virgin Wines – stored for a special occasion but I thought – bugger it-why not? Dark cherries on the nose, plenty of length, good complex earthy pinot notes – I liked it a lot, and would buy a case at the price I paid, if I had my time again…
