Mortet’s Gevrey 1er Cru comes from three brilliantly situated vineyards, each of which have yields too small to be bottled separately. All of these parcels border Grand Cru sites and have an average vine age of over 70 years.
“Simply labelled as premier cru because it combines three parcels (Petite Chapelle, Cherbaudes and Bel Air), all of them planted with old, low-yielding vines. This is another superb release from Arnaud Mortet. It’s a sweet, plush, succulent red with fine-boned tannins, glossy dark berry fruit and a long, polished finish.” 95 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter
“The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru is also very expressive, bursting with aromas of orange rind, peony and wild berries. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, pure and satiny, with a layered mid-palate, good depth and concentration and an elegant, fragrant profile. Mortet opted to manually cut out the central stems for one-quarter of this cuvée, retaining the pedicels.” 90-93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
