Christian Serafin's 2010 Morey St. Denis Les Millandes is a brawny red Burgundy, endowed with complex fruit and spice aromas and flavors -- black cherries, leather and tobacco. Terrific balance and depth on the finish.
Burghound (BH): 90-93
Here too there is mild reduction which renders the nose difficult to assess in depth though again the underlying fruit appears to be ripe. There is excellent volume, power and a taut muscularity to the concentrated and mineral-tinged medium weight flavors that culminate in an austere, backward and highly persistent finish. This is very old school in style and will require ample patience for it to develop, yet will be well worth the wait.
