Domaine Pierre Amiot Et Fils Les Millandes 1er Cru Morey Saint Denis 2019
7 Jul 2022
This premier cru plot Les Millandes is one of the largest climats in Morey-Saint-Denis, known for it’s structured and elegance with firm tannins. Bouquet was very ripe and forward, with a kind of stewed fruits. Content wise, I was in slight disagreement with the plot’s default character of being structured, as my gut feel was, this was a big wine by any standard, yet it was more of a fruity wine rather than a structured wine. There were many shades of flavor with the wine, easily being a blend of cherries, strawberries, plum and even a hint of red dragon fruits! Very appealing fruits, I kept revisiting my glass throughout the evening. There were sandy tannins lurking around, and I much prefer to keep the wines for a few more years before consumption. Afterall, 2019 vintage was a big vintage, there was no doubt the wine can be aged for two to three decades. Production was very limited, thus our allocation was equally limited. Buy and keep while stocks last.
