This Is Not Morey-Saint-Denis (March 2019)

The 1993 Clos-de-la-Roche Grand Cru has an exquisite bouquet, very well defined with cranberry, crushed stone and undergrowth scents. Perhaps I would have liked to see more fruit. The palate shows quite a bit of stem addition. There is certainly some hardness here compared to other 1993s, so it does not translate the elegance of the vintage. But it feels long and grippy, the finish a little austere but fresh. I doubt this will improve with continued bottle age but should last another decade. Tasted at the Burgfest evening dinner.
