    (like the Clos de Vougeot and Beaux Bruns, this was vinified in wood cuves , where the fermentation went faster): Dark, bright red. Wild, musky aromas of raspberry, game and underbrush. Velvety on entry, than large-scaled and thick in the middle palate, showing noteworthy energy and saline complexity to the soil-driven red fruit flavors. This easily digestible wine finishes with terrific length. A superb vintage for this wine chez Mortet.

    There are two new barrels of the 2012 Chambertin Grand Cru this year. It comes from a single parcel of 0.15-hectares next to David Duband and Jean-Louis Trapet. It has a beguiling bouquet with dark cherries, forest floor, hints of bergamot and bay leaf, opening with time in the glass to reveal wonderful mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with an opening that shimmers in the mouth. This is very harmonious and filled with nervosite and energy. It is more understated than say, Bernard Dugat's Chambertin, erring more towards Rousseau in style. This will be hard to find, but you will have one exquisite wine if you do track one down.

  • 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.
