  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Good deep, fresh red. Lively aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol. Silky-sweet on the palate, with solid minerality enlivening the black raspberry and licorice flavors. Densely packed wine with lovely emerging perfume of lavender, spices and white pepper. Finishes with ripe tannins. The crop level was a very-low-for-the-vintage 35 hectoliters per hectare due to the high percentage of tiny berries, noted Mortet. A superb showing today for this village offering.

    The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes across a soft, delicate and ready to go. Sweet floral notes add lift as the wine fleshes out nicely on the finish. The Vieilles Vignes shows plenty of 2009 character its round, inviting personality. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    This plush red is infused with plum, blackberry, smoke and spice flavors, well-constituted with acidity and tannins. This tightens up on the finish, as plum and spice notes return on the tobaccotinged aftertaste.

  • 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.
