  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    (cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare; aging in 30% new oak): Deep red. Pristine aromas of raspberry, crushed stone and minerals. A step up from the regular village cuvee in density of material. Chewy, ripe and energetic wine with noteworthy elegance and floral lift. This is 13% natural alcohol yet has the inner-mouth tension of a 2010. Finishes with suave, building tannins supported by tactile, penetrating fruit. A great village wine in the making.

    From 65 to 70-year old vines towards Brochon and aged in 30% new oak, the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a very perfumed, floral bouquet with hints of wilted violet petals and dried quince infusing the red fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied, very pure opening. This is very expressive and beautifully balanced with real mineralite coming towards the long finish. Feminine and endearing, this is a lovely Gevrey-Chambertin.

    The expressive nose is compositionally similar to the straight Gevrey villages cuvee though here the aromas are slightly more complex. The medium weight flavors are also denser and more powerful with ample minerality and solid power that continues onto the palate coating, balanced and gorgeously long finish. This too is a very fine Gevrey villages and absolutely worth your attention.

  • 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.
