Bright, dark red. Reticent aromas of dark raspberry and spices. Juicy, lively and a bit clenched, with raspberry and floral notes along with a strong spicy oak element. Finishes with a note of truffle and dusty wood tannins. I'd give this young wine a couple years in bottle to absorb some of its oak. This village wine was aged in 40% new wood; Mortet cut the percentage to 25% in 2012.

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.
