It was another strong set of wines from one of Morey-Saint-Denis' finest producers. There is now an almost dizzying array of cuvées either from the domaine or from purchased grapes sourced with his group of friends. Tasting them at the end of November, I factored in that the winter days were hemming in the barrel samples, making them appear to contain less fruit than they were actually bestowed by the warm growing season. Of course, the Charmes-Chambertin and Clos de la Roche represent exemplars of their type, quite brilliant wines predestined for long-term ageing, but there is a trove of goodies to be fond amongst the wide array of Morey-Saint-Denis premier and village crus, Laurent even going as far as dividing his Bourgogne Rouge into two cuvées per lieu-dit (and yes, they are quite different). They are molded in a classic style, less polished than say, Christophe Perrot-Minot's wines up the road, much more structured like Dujac albeit with less whole bunch. As you can read from my notes, Laurent and Hubert are not averse from using whole bunch that varies label to label. Myself, I have a penchant for those crus that did include partial stem addition rather than without. Crown jewels excepting, prices remain reasonable and the only thing really stopping you and I from loading up is the small quantities that some of these are made in. Reviewed by Neal Martin
