Not just an excellent site but with top class pinot material. One of the deepest colours but with a salutary brightness. Such a density of mixed fruits on the nose, nothing specific stands out though certainly a little more on the darker side of the register. This has both backbone and an intensity of fruit which impresses. At least halfway to grand cru in its build! Some tannins, well integrated and wonderful potential.
The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Faconnières 1er Cru has a taut and slightly flinty bouquet. This is well-defined and focused touches of clove and sous-bois emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins good acidity with a touch more density on the finish compared to the Aux Charmes. Cellar this for 3-5 years - this is a strong follow-up to the superb '19.
A cooler and more elegant nose combines notes of kirsch, dark currant, spice and a plethora of floral nuances. There is terrific intensity to the tautly muscular middle weight flavors that display evident power on the mineral-driven, super-sleek and impressively well-balanced, indeed harmonious finale. As is usually the case with this wine, it's sufficiently compact when young to need at least some patience but it will need 12 to 15 years to reach its peak.
