A Study in Grace and Understatement Revisited:
2019 Jouan Morey St. 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.

We're excited about Jouan's 2019 Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé. The tidy summary of the 2019 vintage in Burgundy is that it was a ripe one that produced wines that miraculously remained fresh and with vivid terroir imprints. It's easy to imagine the total package being very impressive.

The fine-tuned grace of Jouan's wines makes them stunning in warmer vintages. The Clos Sorbé struts how successful Jouan was in 2019. 

The 2019 Clos Sorbé puts the concentration of the vintage center stage but weaves it into a beautiful elegance and complicated earthy minerality. 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 2019 Clos Sorbé serves as an archetypal example of Jouan's soulfulness and purity. I'm happy to have another opportunity to offer this.
