Vinous 92 points - Good medium red. Complex nose combines redcurrant, tobacco, smoke, underbrush and a whiff of marzipan. The broadest and fleshiest of these 2008s by far, with lovely sweetness leavened by terrific acidity. Medicinal black cherry and menthol flavors saturate the palate but are still holding plenty in reserve. Finishes broad and quite long, with nicely buffered tannins and very good lift.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Clean raw meatiness, blackberry, and beet root dominate the Morot 2008 Beaune Teurons, whose abundant tannins are finer-grained and fruit sweeter than those of several stable mates. These aspects might in part be attributable to the high, breeze-exposure site, less because the location would have accentuated the windy concentration of late September than because it would have helped ward-off rot in the weeks prior. Hints of leather, tobacco, and salt add savory complexity to a wine that should reward cellaring for at least a decade. (Jun 2010)
