A Study in Grace and Understatement:
2016 Jouan Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

Posted by Ian McFadden

Jouan's Clos Sorbé gets to the beating heart of the domaine like no other wine in the incredibly strong lineup does.

Jouan's wines are all about subtlety and a mysterious quiet depth. The Clos Sorbé captures this signature with heartbreaking beauty.

Jouan's Clos Sorbé possesses a haunting mixture of perfume and delicacy. There's a velvety, nuanced complexity to the wine that makes it easy to become obsessed with.

I'm happy to offer Jouan's 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé for $129.95 per bottle.

Just to underscore how limited Jouan's Clos Sorbé is, I should mention that there's currently only three listings in the U.S. for any vintage of the wine.

The 2016 Clos Sorbé is an incredible distillation of what makes the wine so compelling. The concentration of the vintage really puts the wine's elegance and complicated earthy minerality center stage. It's complemented by a pristine clarity of spice inflected fruit.

Jouan's are some of the most beautiful and graceful Burgundies that you'll taste. The 2016 Clos Sorbé serves as an archetypal example of Jouan's soulfulness and purity. Don't miss out on this.
