Virgile Lignier regards this vineyard as the quintessential premier cru of the appéllation. The 2015 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Faconnières, which includes 40-50% whole bunches, has a very complex and sophisticated bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, very precise and detailed with black cherries, raspberry preserve, dried rose petals and tangible cold stone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity that imbues this premier cru with heightened harmony and focus. It "flows" towards the finish with wonderful tension and frisson on the finish. This is an outstanding Morey-Saint-Denis from Virgile. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

Sweet, rich and fun – because it’s not sickly sweet. Grainy tannins and a tad fresher than the Vieilles Vignes. Just fades slightly on the finish. Jancis Robinson

Tasting note: An intensely floral and spice-suffused nose is comprised mostly by red berry fruit, plum and raspberry aromas. There is excellent punch to the delineated and markedly mineral-driven flavors that culminate in a balanced and beautifully persistent finish where a hint of warmth appears. As is usually the case, this beauty is a combination of refinement and power. Outstanding – Allen Meadows - Burghound
