2015 Jouan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

Posted by Ian McFadden

Clos Sorbé is very likely Morey's most heartbreakingly delicate site. Jouan milks the site for every last drop of lacy elegance.

Jouan's are the types of wines that haunt people's memories. They are studies in understatement and finesse with captivating perfume.

For us and many others, Jouan's wines have become an obsession. They thrive on a whispering elegance and grace that's simply thrilling.

Without a doubt, Clos Sorbé is one of our favorites. Clos Sorbé is a devastatingly intricate and mineral expression of Red Burgundy. In any vintage it delivers a remarkable weightless complexity.

Even in that context, the 2015 Clos Sorbé will be special. The 2015 reds are among the best of the past few decades. Jouans' 2015s are a dream brew of elegance, concentration and vibrant lift.

I'm very happy to have landed a second parcel of Jouan's 2015 Clos Sorbé. We had quietly sent out an offer over July 4th weekend. This wine definitely deserves a primetime slot and I'm glad that I'm able to give it one today.
