The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru is showing quite a lot of new oak on the nose, but there is the fruit behind to support it. The palate is medium-bodied, quite modern in style with plenty of new oak, but it is in sync with the fruit. There is a gorgeous velvety texture on the persistent finish. Afford it two or three more years in bottle and it should turn out very fine. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. 92 points. Neal Martin, Vinous Media Tank sample. Mid cherry red. Another pretty, scented wine but a little more savoury than the Gevrey. The tannins are firmer and drier, the wine a little more upright and yet still highlights the fruit on the finish. This has greater longevity, but I enjoyed the Gevrey more at this young stage. 17+/20. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com The 2016 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru La Riotte has an expressive and engaging bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, pressed flowers and bergamot tea, complex and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, maybe a little conservative but very precise with a sense of energy and tension conveyed on the finish. Fortunately there is a good volume of this wine this vintage — try to buy some. 91-93 points. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
