    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Denis Mortet, Gevrey Chambertin, Mes Cinq Terroirs, 2014

    Damson mulberry and dark fruits, sultry and suave but also very precise. The grip of tannin is pure silk and there is a sweet spice element adding complexity. Back-lit sweetness. A very smart villages. This is the second time Arnaud has blended his village parcels since 2005 and it looks like the great results have persuaded him to make this an ongoing blend .

    ABV:
    13%
    90/100
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    Healthy medium red. Musky aromas of black cherry, smoke, mocha and sweet oak. A tightly coiled wine of moderate flesh, this village bottling offers nicely delineated flavors of dark berries, licorice, bitter chocolate and earth complicated by a saline minerality that no doubt comes from the higher-altitude parcels that go into the blend. This very successful village wine should maintain its energy.

    Denis Mortet

    Denis Mortet's death in the early part of 2006 was a tragedy that shook the wine world. He was able to make the 2005s and fortunately his talented son Arnaud was waiting in the wings to take over. Denis was already leaning towards making a more gentle style of Burgundy in 2006 and Arnaud seems to have even more whole-heartedly adopted this philosophy, moving closer to the wines of great uncle, Charles Rousseau. During fermantation, extraction is very light and much less new oak (no more than 40%) is employed during élévage. Whole bunches are used during fermentations for all but the basic cuvées, to varying degrees depending on the vineyard and vintage. Arnaud has refined his style and is now at the top of his game, making effortless, crystalline red Burgundies that rate among the finest in the Côte.
