Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Denis Mortet, Gevrey Chambertin, 2010

Sweet ripe fruits, glorious aromatic Pinot flavours with incredible finesse and poise for a Gevrey; perfumed fruit notes of kirsch, red cherry and cherry blossom with complex touches of salt. Bright and Beautiful. Exquisite. A Villages that comes from vines that are no younger than 40 to 50 years old, half of it coming from the Au Velle lieu dit.

ABV:
13%
89/100
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

Medium red. Wild, expressive aromas of raspberry, strawberry, smoke and underbrush. Sweet, supple and rich but youthfully backward. Builds impressively toward the back end, showing strong saline minerality and a serious acid/tannin spine. This shows more focus in bottle than it did from barrel a year ago. I'd give it a couple years in the cellar before pulling the cork.

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.
