2018 Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs

$240.00

This is Mortet’s ‘super Gevrey’ and comes from a clutch of five brilliantly placed plots that Denis Mortet deliberately chose for the quality of their terroirs and vines. The vineyards include En Motrot, situated between the church and Château de Gevrey-Chambertin close to Clos Saint-Jacques; Au Vellé, very close-by under Petits Cazetiers; Combe-du-Dessus, situated at the top of the Brochon slope just north-east of Gevrey itself; En Champs directly below Gevrey’s 1er Cru Champeaux (the vines here are over 70 years old); and En Dérée, below En Champs on the Brochon border. 

Only 30% new barrels were used here and 15% whole berries (hand-destemmed). This is simply outstanding, and would have no problem passing for 1er Cru status in a blind line-up. Deep and layered, the notes below sum things up beautifully. Importer Notes

Critic Reviews

“ Five-star wine. Impressive dense purple, this has a magical suavity of dark dense fruit with elegance and balance, really classy. I was going to say that Mes Cinq Terroirs was a textbook Gevrey but it is better than that.” 92-95 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
