Tasting Notes

With its eroded limestone walls covered in creepers and wildflowers, this is one of Gevrey’s most picturesque vineyards. It is situated high on the border of Brochon next to Les Evocelles. The vines are now 80 years old. The soils here are very stony with red clays, and the mother-rock is very close to the surface. Mortet ploughs his four small plots (totaling 0.5-hectares) by horse.

This is a site that typically delivers very small berries and powerful, ripe fruit flavours with high-grown, fruit-of-the-forest finesse and freshness. Mortet has reduced the new wood content (now 60%, down from 100% in his father’s era). It’s a terroir that gifts wines of a more structured, more ‘Gevrey’ style, but this year it is simply stunning (as the notes below make clear). Buy what you can. - Importer Note
