Gevrey-Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.

Domaine Denis Mortet

For many years, Dénis Mortet worked passionately to create one of the most sought after domainesin Burgundy. He learned about winemaking while working with his father Charles, a cousin ofCharles Rousseau, at Domaine Charles Mortet. During these years he helped grow the family estatefrom 1 hectare to 8. Following his father's retirement in 1991, he had to relinquish half of thedomaine's vineyards to his younger brother. Dénis then rebuilt his vineyard area to almost 10hectares dispersed over 12 appellations. For years, his exceptional determination and self-criticism drove him in pursuit of the holy grail of Gevrey Chambertin.Year-in and year-out, he aimed for higher and higher ideals believing that there was always better, always purer. After his unexpected passing in early 2006, his son, Arnaud, took over vineyard management and winemaking. It would be an understatement to say that we arethoroughly impressed with his mature, self confident and knowledgeable nature. He truly has themakings of a great winemaker.

Pinot Noir

Undeniably capricious, Pinot Noir is known as one of most difficult varieties to grow. Its wines tend to be light in colour and only moderately structured, but can also be highly aromatic and profoundly sensual. When young, they often display fresh raspberry, cherry and/or blackberry flavours, and with a bit of age can develop into the most complex and enthralling wines imaginable. Although it is found in various parts of the world such as California, New Zealand and South Africa, its best results come from the core of Burgundy where it flourishes in its cool climate and predominantly limestone-rich soils and in the exquisite Blanc de Noirs of Champagne.
