Winemaker Notes

Very complex, persistent and deep, it requires a bit of time to fully express itself. When it is ready, it is nothing short of perfection: tight and velvety tannins, refined and ripened fruit, with a practically never ending finish.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
(made from a combination of estate and négociant fruit, which Mortet assembled due to the frost-reduced production; 100% destemmed; aging in 70% new oak): Wild, slightly porty aromas of kirsch, licorice, violet and game. Suave and fine-grained on entry, then tight, youthful and primary in the middle palate, conveying a slightly rustic quality to its flavors of blackberry, blueberry and animal fur. This is distinctly more imploded today than the Champeaux, as well as very ripe and a bit reduced. Here the tannins are a bit tough and medicinal but the finish builds impressively. Difficult to assess in its current phase. Incidentally, Mortet will bottle these two grape sources separately in 2017, one under the Domaine Denis Mortet label and the other under Arnaud Mortet.

Arnaud Mortet, France
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.
