Tasting Notes

This family estate makes a wide range of wines from Gevrey-Chambertin to Puligny-Montrachet using traditional winemaking methods. This Morey-St.-Denis expresses impeccable quality packed with raspberry, dark cherry, cedar and a touch of smoke. Enjoy the great density and velvety texture.


Staff Pick Notes

A lot of the famous regions within Burgundy produce wines that need 10+ years (at least) aging in the bottle before they are considered “ready to drink,” and that can be frustrating. Luckily there are wines that circumvent this general guideline. Jean Féry’s Morey-St.-Denis walks the line gracefully between ripe primary fruit and savory secondary characteristics that normally come with more years of age. Fresh red berries, aromatic green herbs, Worcestershire sauce, and smoked salt all neatly woven together without any under ripe tannin. While you can cellar this for a rainy day, there is no need to, pull the cork now and let it have its moment in the sun.
