  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($252) Bright, deep red. Musky aromas of black cherry and licorice. Sweet, chewy and lush; a big wine but conveys an impression of lower acidity than most of Mortet's examples from Gevrey-Chambertin. This is completely different in shape from most of the foregoing samples. Finishes broad and tannic. From a hot spot in this vast grand cru: the vines on rocky but deep soil are located just below the Chateau de la Tour and are protected from north winds by the village of Vougeot.

    An exceptional wine, the 2002 Clos Vougeot (harvested at 14.2% natural potential alcohol) explodes from the glass with aromas of coffee-laced black cherries, spices, and blackberries. Medium to full-bodied, ample, and expansive, it coats the taster's palate with innumerable silky layers of perfume, flowers, cherries, raspberries, and underlying notes of rocks and earth. Harmonious yet powerful, it is fresh, admirably balanced, extremely ripe, and highly expressive.

    Moderately reserved cassis, plum and coffee aromas cut with a distinct menthol note merge into powerful, full-bodied flavors of terrific size and intensity. The strikingly long, chocolaty finish goes on and on. This is quite particular in style and it's a bit too ripe for me but this is undeniably impressive.

  • 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.
