1993 georges vasseur morey 1er les monts luisants

This wine turned out to be a bit of an auction ‘catch’. Approaching it’s twentieth birthday and a bit of a rarity for showing the actual Morey vineyard name that far back. Always a danger such ‘no-name’ négoce bottles, though the name ‘Morey’ on the label is often something of a counterbalance! In this case the label is today a sub-brand of Ligeret (Nuits) – but I don’t recall ever seeing their (Ligeret’s) wines…

1993 Georges Vasseur, Morey St.Denis 1er Les Monts Luisants
Relatively deep colour. The nose has herbs, dark fruit and a very faint espresso. Supple, lithe and with a lovely intensity that grows in the mid-palate and becomes more and more mouth-watering. The herby, slightly spicy fruit has a masculine demeanour but fine acidity means it is delivered without overt weight, yet there remains premier cru weight and intensity. This is lovely stuff for a ‘no-name’ négoce label, I’d jump at the chance to buy more. This bottle was drinking beautifully in a, still, sub-mature way…
Rebuy – Yes
