"The 2010 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru has matured well in bottle, delivering clean and pure red cherry, crushed strawberry and raspberry preserve scents, just a hint of wilted rose petal developing with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin. It feels crisp and focused, quite mineral-driven with a precise finish that just refuses to fan out, as I would have liked. Still, give this La Riotte another year in bottle because I can see this evolving fascinating secondary flavours." Neal Martin in 2019
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
