    (these vines are now 50 years old): Bright medium red. Cherry, raspberry and flowers on the nose and palate. A sweet, juicy fruit bomb in the mouth; supple and pliant but with terrific cut and sappy energy. This has the inner-mouth tension of a 2010. Finishes firm but not hard, with fine-grained tannins and lovely vibrancy. This has turned out very well.

    Crushed rose petals, mint, small red cherries and wild flowers are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2011 Clos de Vougeot. A wine of delicacy and finesse, the 2011 impresses for its nuance and transparency, all attributes that aren't always easy to find in Clos Vougeot. The lifted, aromatically expressive finish is particularly of note.

  • 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.
