2006 Morey Pierre, Bourgogne Pinot NoirFeb. 2011
This wine has already lost the inviting youthful fruit aromas of its first two years; it’s now narrower but perhaps deeper too with a hint of leather with some macerating dark cherry. Nice and round in the mouth and still with a hint of fat to the texture. Initially there’s just a little bitter/sour in the finish but it’s a little character before either I or it reach equilibrium and it’s gone! What’s left is a nice wine of quite enough depth for the label, still some interesting fruit and last drops that leave a lovely aroma in the glass. This is the last from half a dozen – all drank well – I would say drink-up, I have.

2006 Morey Pierre, Bourgogne Pinot NoirMay. 2009
Medium colour. High tones, with pretty red berry and cherry fruit – it’s really lovely. The palate is not quite how I remember it; the texture is reasonably silky with just an edge of fat, but the acidity is much more in the ascendant than when I first had it – it’s also quite tart. Mouth-watering length, not surprisingly, but with a sneaky creamy edge. The fruit on the nose remains super. I would not touch another of these for at least 3 years as I does remind me of the ‘96 Leroy bourgogne at the same stage, and that’s a beauty now!
2006 Morey Pierre, Meursault PerrièresDec. 2008
It’s an understated but very fine nose – really lovely focus to the fruit. Concentrated texture – though not oily – beautiful acid balance and flavours that hold on for an age. This is a zen-like wine, you could lose yourself in a busy room while sipping it – I did. Superb.
2005 Morey Pierre, Bourgogne Pinot NoirDec. 2008
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.
2006 Morey Pierre, Bourgogne Pinot NoirDec. 2008
Medium colour. High-toned, slightly mineral nose under-pinned with very nice fruit. Ripe, tasty and clean with good concentration and plenty of energy and dimension. Excellent regional.
2006 Morey Pierre, Meursault Les DurotsDec. 2008
Medium colour. The nose is pretty tight. In the mouth there’s plenty of structure but it’s balanced by good fruit and late appearing but quite fine tannin. Good length and quite interesting.
2006 Morey Pierre, Volnay SantenotsDec. 2008
Medium, medium-plus colour. Very faint reduction plus higher tones, in the middle is a layer of tight fruit. Ripe flavours with understated tannin. The fruit is quite intense, but I expect a little more for the appellation. Good length though.
2006 Morey Pierre, Pommard Grands EpenotsDec. 2008
Medium, medium-plus colour. This nose is also rather tight but there seems more depth to the fruit. Structured and intense, the lingering fruit flavours are lovely. Needs cellar time for sure, but it’s a good bottle.
