    (these vines are now 100 years old, according to Arnaud Mortet; 80% new oak): Deep red. Liqueur-like aromas of raspberry and kirsch , complicated by sweet oak and soil tones. The palate shows a tiny-berry concentration and lovely silky richness and depth, but sound acidity and firm underlying minerality leaven its sweetness. Very youthful, energetic wine with a firm spine of noble tannins. No easy sweetness here but really builds on the long finish.

    The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux saw 80% new oak and 30% whole-cluster fruit. The nose is ripe and candied on the entry: blackberry, raspberry and a touch of vanilla. Quite modern in style but nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, much more elegant than the aromatics suggest with just a hint of spice on the intense finish. There is a saline aftertaste that is very attractive, though I would give this Gevrey-Chambertin 4-5 years to really coalesce and develop secondary notes. Drink 2016-2030.

    The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux is all about subtlety and grace. Not quite as juicy as the 1er Cru, the Champeaux is built on a linear, energetic frame. Silky, aromatic and lifted, the 2011 impresses for its balance and class. Hints of cinnamon, savory herbs and violets are woven into the close.

  • 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.
