Vinous – 92
The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Aux Chesaux 1er Cru is a little more open on the nose that Arlaud’s other Premier Crus, a mixture of black and red fruit, pressed violets, quite powerful in style. The palate is medium-bodied with finer tannins than the nose suggests, well balanced but linear and correct. It’s the kind of straightlaced Morey that will show better on the dinner table rather than on its own.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2045
