2006 Alain Jeanniard, Morey St.Denis Vieilles Vignes


I’ve not had many from this domaine which is sited just towards the top of the village on the (vineyard) road into Clos St.Denis, finally I picked up a couple of bottles.

2006 Alain Jeanniard, Morey St.Denis Vieilles Vignes try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. Lovely depth and Morey character to the nose – nice red fruit with a real density to back it up – very nice indeed. On the tongue it seems not the ultimate in concentration, but there’s excellent darker fruit with that creamy old-vine impression. The acidity and tannin are slightly forward, but they only serve to cement the long mineral-infused finish – again with an impression of cream – excellent stuff, I’m looking forward to trying one of the domaine’s 1er crus.
Rebuy – Yes

    As a gross rule of thumb, how many bottles would you say it takes you to get a village character to be identifiable?

    Cool. As a budding burgundy buff, who started out with Cal cab, Napa is easy to identify. Burgundy I can’t really get any farther than, not Russian River, not Oregon, not Santa Rita, must be burg!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
