The sole reason Philippe Jouan's wines remain little known is because so little is made. He is the 4th generation of his family at the estate, handcrafting fine Burgundy with no expense spared. This Morey is supple, fragrant and fruit driven.

Beyond the Label
Satin textured red fruits, smoky spice and rounded tannins
Cherry, plum and leafy blackcurrant, touch of earthy spice
This fine, fourth generation estate was founded by Philippe Jouan’s great grandfather. He was a barrel maker with a few vines alongside. Even today, they own only 3 hectares of vines and manage another 1.5 hectares, all in beautifully positioned plots. As a consequence, their wines are hugely difficult to get hold of and reservations have to be made long in advance. They have been suppliers to Drouhin for 50 years too, a fact they are proud of. Careful tending in the vineyards, natural treatments and gentle handling in the cellar result in this fine village Morey, with its seductive silky texture, wafts of complex aromas and a divine palate of cassis and plum, cinnamon, mocha, roasted meat and coffee bean. Decant early or cellar.
"Readers would do well to seek out this high-quality source. An excellent set of 2017s"
