A small back vintage allocation from their cellar. Not tasted, however please refer to Allen Meadows note: Pierre Morey and Domaine Roulot have side-by-side vineyards in undoubtedly the finest section, both within the ‘Clos de Mon Plaisir’. The Morey family leave this title for Roulot as they are peacekeepers and happy for Roulot to champion the name. The vineyard itself is mid-slope with an easterly aspect on perfectly drained stony soil of clay and limestone substrate. Quite steep. The vineyard has historically been noted as having the same pedigree as the other premier cru vineyards however, due to being slightly more north, with more of an easterly aspect and next to no southerly exposure, it was downgraded when the AOC was put into place. For many growers including Pierre Morey, this so called less-desirable aspect actually produces wines of particular excitement and intrigue. They are wines of incredible energy and tension. Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to assess at present. The slightly bigger and richer flavors also possess a caressing mouth feel along with lovely intensity before delivering outstanding depth and length on the serious, indeed even mildly austere finale. This is a big yet relatively refined Meursault villages and a wine that is also very much worthy of your interest. 89-92 Points, Outstanding?Top Value. Allen meadows, The Burghound
