A mature 1er Cru Côte de Nuits Red Burgundy.
Older Burgundies, such as this, are not seen as often their counterparts from Bordeaux, but their development makes for really interesting wines. Morey-Saint-Denis sits the the heart of the Côte de Nuits adjoining Gevrey-Chambertin and the wines from the Clos des Ormes vineyard, not far from the appellation boundary certainly share some of their characteristics. Over the years the 2006 has matured very well developing the richly gamey character of an aged Burgundy.
This is quite a treat and excellent to drink with feathered game dishes in not too rich a sauce.
