WTN: The Michelot Man

2013 Domaine Alain Michelot Morey St. Denis - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis (1/8/2018)
This is an interesting wine to drink right now, largely because it is in a sort of in between place, where it shows its fruit for a few minutes, and then the structure comes out. It must have flipped back and forth five or six times over the two hours I spent with it. I will presume that it is headed into some period of slumber, and the episodes of red fruit were like the irritated stares from a cat that is trying to go to sleep. Revisit this in 5 years or so. Better yet, go with 7-10.
