Winemaker Notes

This is without a doubt the house’s most charming Gevrey-Chambertin. Its straight forward nature immediately reveals velvet fruitiness and notes with a touch of spice and smoke. It is delicious after just a couple of years ageing.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Pure cherry, raspberry and stony mineral flavors are the hallmarks of this juicy red, with a firm, well-integrated structure. Combines elegance and muscle. The finish is dense and long. Best from 2022 through 2036.
V 92
(Mortet purchases grapes in a number of parcels in the southern half of the village, "near the grand crus," harvesting with his own team; vinified with 20% whole clusters): Healthy dark red. Sappy, saline aromas of black raspberry, dark chocolate and rocky minerality. Plush, thick and primary, even a bit youthfully medicinal, but with its dense dark fruit flavors given punch by a mineral pungency. The long, echoing finish features substantial ripe tannins supported by the wine's strong material. Mortet describes these "new" vines as "a bit younger than those of the domain but still mostly 50 to 70 years old." Should make a superb village wine.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
BH 90
The expressive nose is ripe and ultra-fresh with its aromas of violet, plum, earth, red and dark cherry and humus. There is excellent volume to the attractively energetic medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract as well as a subtle minerality on the complex, detailed, persistent and highly refreshing finish as one just feels like drinking this. Recommended.

Arnaud has been making the wines at his family's estate (Domaine Denis Mortet) since 2007 when his father tragically passed away. In 2015 one of his neighbors offered Arnaud 4.5 hectares in Gevrey-Chambertin on a five year lease-to-own deal. Arnaud took the leap and started his own label with 2016 as his first release. These wines are produced using exactly the same farming methods and wine-making approach as those under the Denis Mortet label.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Burgundy, France

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.
