The 2014 Morey St Denis Cuvee des Grives was showing just a small reduction on the nose when I tasted it, though one could still discern the tart red cherries mixed with red rose scents that gained intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin, a crisp line of acidity, a little brittle in the mouth but with a pleasant oyster-shell, marine-infused finish that is appealing. On the aftertaste, there is residue of white pepper with tang of licorice. Though it needs more harmony, it should be a fascinating 2014 once in bottle.
