Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 25

A pungent nose of black cherry and iron-infused and very fresh warm earth aromas introduce frank, direct and linear flavors underpinned by obvious minerality and a delineated and relatively refined texture on the beautifully persistent finish. This is cooler and more reserved in the mouth with impeccable balance that should allow it to improve for up to a decade.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 137

($225) Deep red-ruby. Blueberry and minerals on the nose. Initially seemed tight and pure, with lovely cut and purity, but lowish acidity and a chocolatey aspect suggest that this wine, which is normally among the ripest cuvees in the cave, is verging on overripe. Finishes with building tannins. Although Mortet thinks his '05s will "take a long time to express themselves," he also noted that 2005 is not his favorite style of vintage, adding that "it's too ripe to be considered typical Burgundy." He told me he prefers 2004 and 2006 for their acidity.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 170

Mortet's 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux (from very old vines) smells of ripe cassis, meats and chalk along with subtle spice and vanilla, displays formidable density, firmness, and fine-grained texture on the palate yet persistent brightness and elegance, and finishes with palate-staining, bitter-edged black fruits and chalky, salty minerality. This low-toned, overtly mineral beauty should evolve impressively over at least the next 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Ripe and silky, exuding sweet cherry and berry notes that pick up spice and new leather accents. It's intense, yet has finesse, gliding to a long finish. The tannins are there, but covered in fruit and flesh for now.
