  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Dark red. Complex aromas of raspberry, smoke and coffee. Broad, ripe, velvety and sweet, conveying outstanding volume for the vintage without any undue weight. At once large-scaled and elegant, finishing with considerable power, echoing mineral persistence and gripping tannins that leave the salivary glands quivering. Wonderfully palate-saturating wine considering that the fruit was picked with potential alcohol in the low 12s.

    The 2011 Chambertin captures every bit of the potential I sensed last year. Easily one of the wines of the vintage, the Chambertin possesses both stunning delineation and richness. Blue/purplish fruit, smoke, licorice, tar and spice burst onto the palate in an intense, explosive Burgundy loaded with pedigree. Simply put, this is a dazzling effort from Arnaud Mortet.

    There were 2.5 barrels of the 2011 Chambertin Grand Cru. It has a very expressive, very intense bouquet with dark-berry fruit, hints of licorice, wild mint and forest-floor that does not unfold but more explodes from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy, mushroom-tinged opening. Quite masculine and structured with dry tannins on the finish, this will need several years to really harmonize and show its personality. Fine - but the 2012 is better.

  • 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.
