($125) Deep red. Exotic but pure aromas of purple fruits, violet and spices. Supple and juicy, with a strong spice character and a suggestion of crystallized fruits. Finishes with firm, building tannins and a medicinal suggestion of menthol. This village wine really calls for five or six years of aging.

Sweet start. So charming and seductive! Deep and gorgeous. Tingles and races over the palate. Real tingle.

I was expecting a lot from this wine, but didn't get much beyond pinot flavors and earth. Only had a tasting size pour though, so would love to see what time/air could do for this wine

About This Producer


This relatively young domaine - founded in the early 1980s - has a tragic history. Just as Denis Mortet, and his acclaimed wines, were attaining great success, M. Mortet took his own life (January 2006). However, we are left with a domaine whose immaculate vineyards span 10 hectares in 14 different appellations. The wines are intense, pure, undeniably rich pleasures to drink and age. 100% new French oak is used on all of the wines. The 2005s are the last vintage that he tended from vine to bottle and perfectly honor his limitless passion and commitment to making the very best he could.
