Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 90-92

A pungent nose of black cherry and iron-infused and very fresh warm earth aromas introduce frank, direct and linear flavors underpinned by obvious minerality and a delineated and relatively refined texture on the beautifully persistent finish. This is cooler and more reserved in the mouth with impeccable balance that should allow it to improve for up to a decade.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)?

($225) Deep red-ruby. Blueberry and minerals on the nose. Initially seemed tight and pure, with lovely cut and purity, but lowish acidity and a chocolatey aspect suggest that this wine, which is normally among the ripest cuvees in the cave, is verging on overripe. Finishes with building tannins. Although Mortet thinks his '05s will "take a long time to express themselves," he also noted that 2005 is not his favorite style of vintage, adding that "it's too ripe to be considered typical Burgundy." He told me he prefers 2004 and 2006 for their acidity.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93-94

Mortet's 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux (from very old vines) smells of ripe cassis, meats and chalk along with subtle spice and vanilla, displays formidable density, firmness, and fine-grained texture on the palate yet persistent brightness and elegance, and finishes with palate-staining, bitter-edged black fruits and chalky, salty minerality. This low-toned, overtly mineral beauty should evolve impressively over at least the next 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Ripe and silky, exuding sweet cherry and berry notes that pick up spice and new leather accents. It's intense, yet has finesse, gliding to a long finish. The tannins are there, but covered in fruit and flesh for now.

About This Producer

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.
