Domaine Denis Mortet

Lovely, fresh, mid-weight wines reflecting the vintage. After a number of years of low yields here, 2017 yielded a relatively high 45hl/ha for village and 40hl/ha for premiers crus. Arnaud mentioned that, due to reserves of energy in the vine from half a crop in 2016, there was a potential to make 70hl/ha in 2017 if a severe pruning and de-budding had not been practised. 14 people toil on 14 hectares in the summer to tend the vines. Harvest began on 6th September.

The percentage of new oak is noted. It is well judged and does not mark the wines. Some whole-bunch fermentation is also practised, contributing an extra spark of freshness and the promise of a rose-like perfume to develop after some bottle age as any aromas of the stems disappear.

Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs 2017

Arnaud Mortet first made this wine in 2013, amalgamating his standard and his vieilles vignes cuvées into a single wine, and this has worked very well. Previously the basic village wine was just a little subpar, while some of the vieilles vignes cuvées rivalled the premiers crus. The Cinq Terroirs (five vineyards) in this wine are Au Vellé, En Motrot, Combes du Dessus, En Champs and En Deré, and their assemblage produces a very superior village wine. Bright and vibrant in 2017, with intensity of aroma and flavour to the fore rather than power, and a lovely fresh finish. 15% whole-bunch fermented. 35% new oak. Drink from 2025 to 2031. 13%

Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Champeaux 2017

A lovely east-facing vineyard from the cool Combe de Lavaux. This combines Gevrey’s ripe fruit and completeness with a little extra aromatic personality, while retaining freshness. 30% whole-bunch fermented. 70% new oak. Drink from 2026 to 2039. 13.5%

Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques 2017

Superb wine. This vineyard is beautifully situated in the Combe de Lavaux, a cool spot as cold air drains down into the combe (or valley) at night, but with a warm south-east exposition which intercepts more morning sun. This duality gives ripe yet fresh grapes with an extra nuance of intensity and energy. 5% whole-bunch fermented. 70% new oak. Drink from 2026 to 2039. 13%

Domaine Denis Mortet, Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2017

This is a really fine and elegant Clos Vougeot. The 2017 vintage contributes finesse and diminishes firmness which has really suited this wine, which has silky tannins and very long finish of grand cru dimensions. 25% whole-bunch fermentation. 80% new oak. Drink from 2030 to 2041. 13.5%
