Wine Advocate 91 points - Bright, dark red-ruby. Dark berry aromas are complicated by musky earthy nuances. Concentrated, energetic wine with a chewy, tactile mouthfeel to its dark fruit flavors; fresh acidity gives it excellent inner-mouth tension. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and building length. Very successful, solidly structured wine.
(Barrel Tasting 89-91) The 2013 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de la Bussiere has a taut, well-defined bouquet with light oyster-shell scents emerging in the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh with a chalky, almost brittle texture, noticeable acidity and a tart and pointed finish. This seems just a little disjointed at the moment, so hopefully it will meld together during the remainder of its maturation period.
