Tasting Notes

This is Mortet’s ‘super Gevrey’, from an outstanding clutch of five brilliantly placed terroirs that Denis Mortet deliberately chose for the quality of their terroirs and vines. The vineyards include En Motrot, situated between the church and Château de Gevrey-Chambertin, close to Clos Saint-Jacques; Au Vellé, very close-by under Petits Cazetiers; La Combe du Dessus, situated at the top of the Brochon slope just north-east of Gevrey itself; En Champs directly below Gevrey’s 1er Cru Champeaux (the vines here are over 70 years old); and En Dérée, below En Champs on the Brochon border. Only 30% new barrels were used here and 15% whole bunches. This is simply outstanding and would have no problem passing for 1er status in a blind line up. - Importer Note

Domaine Denis Mortet has been considered one of the great growers of the Côte de Nuits for close to 25 years ‚– basically since La Revue du vin de France named Denis Mortet the best wine grower in France in 1995. Outstanding holdings, the legendary standard of vineyard work and the quality, consistency and longevity of the Domaine's wines have well-justified this reputation. And yet, even with such an illustrious history, this is a producer that continues to make significant strides forward, the wines gaining in quality and breed with every visit. Mortet somehow manages to be an established icon while radiating the aura of a new star. You visit each year with extremely high expectations, and yet these expectations are always surpassed by the quality and class on offer. I have often wondered how this is possible. One of the keys is the still-young and talented Arnaud Mortet, who took over the Domaine from his famous father only a decade ago and has subsequently driven it to new heights, continuously looking for areas that he can improve the wines even further. A new, more practical cellar full of concrete fermenters, less new oak for ageing, more whole bunches in the fermenters (when Arnaud considers it makes sense) and this young man's growing experience and confidence have led to ever finer wines being produced here ‚– wines of far greater finesse and balance. It should be no surprise that such a great Domaine has released a tremendous set of wines from an outstanding red vintage like 2015. And yet, no matter how high our expectations were, we walked away shaking our head in awe and wonder. We trust you will do the same. - Importer Note
