    A polished, silky style, whose black cherry and raspberry flavors are accented by graphite and spice. Balanced and long, with a firmly tannic yet integrated finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 244 cases imported.

    The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs is a blend of all Arnaud's Gevrey-Chambertin holdings. His late father Denis bottled them separately until 2004 and 2005 when he elected to blend them together -- with Arnaud following in his path, correctly in my humble opinion. Matured in 30% to 35% new oak, it has a brisk, stony red berry bouquet with attractive undergrowth scents percolating through. Very natural. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp structure, almost chalky tannin, very fine acidity, and a little compact towards the finish but it maintains precision from start to finish. This is an excellent Gevrey that comes highly recommended.

  • 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.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
