Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 93
A markedly floral nose reflects additional notes of spicy and quite cool aromas of relatively high-toned red currant along with hints of forest floor, earth and a whiff of the sauvage. The sleek, intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors exude a subtle mineral character onto the solidly concentrated flavors that culminate in a super-saline, youthfully austere and lingering finish that is borderline white wine-like crisp and chiseled. Patience required though.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Whereas the domaine's rendition is entirely destemmed, more than 30% of Arnaud Mortet's own label 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques was destemmed by hand, retaining the pedicels. The wine is consequently quite different in character, wafting from the glass with notes of peony, sweet spices, citrus peel and berry fruit. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and vibrant, with fine-grained, powdery tannins that are worlds apart from the more classic structure of the domaine bottling, concluding with a long and succulent finish.

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.
