pierre morey 2005 bourgogne pinot noir

20.10.2008billn

This relatively unassuming label delivers everything that the Girardin label promised but absolutely failed to deliver. Clearly there is a vintage difference, but in the final analysis, this tastes like pinot noir, and a very good one too. Aromatically much more interesting than the Foillard of the day before, though the Morgon had the edge in the mouth. Overall the Morgon is a slightly better package for drinking today, but a dead heat from an interest perspective.
2005 Pierre Morey, Bourgogne Pinot Noirtry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. The nose is deep and heavily scented, darkly fruited, edged with a little cream and with something just a little more floral above – very impressive. The palate is a little more linear than the nose, medium density with good dark fruit, slightly forward acidity and a nice extra dimension in the mid-palate. The reasonably grained tannin is in the background.
Rebuy – Yes

    Yum !! Sounds pretty good Bill. Reckon I’ll try & find some of this, not least as Pierre Morey has to be one of the nicest guys I have ever met & in my view a consistently superb winemaker – especially Chardonnay. Visited his Meursault premises years ago with my father for a tasting – PM’s a lovely man & was extremely generous to us strangers. Recall he had a son who died in his teens (accident ?) and when he mentioned this he became quite emotional which was very sad. Have met him a few times since at Justerini’s January London tastings – I can still almost taste his 2006 Les Tessons, one of the wines of the night for me, which outshone a goodly number of supposedly superior wines in the room.

      It was indeed very nice Mark. It will be interesting to compare to his 2006 – almost all regionals are wallflowers when compared to the 2005 versions – but I won’t get my hand on that bottle for another 4 weeks or so…
