En Primeur | Domaine Tortochot 2019

This is our third vintage working with the delightful Chantal Tortochot. The transition from selling the majority of their fruit in her father Gabriel’s time to the négociant house Joseph Drouhin to becoming a fully-fledged domaine has been a smooth one. Their consistent quality is breath-taking; with four Grand Crus, five Premiers Crus and vineyards across the three great appellations of Chambolle Musigny, Morey St Denis and Gevrey Chambertin, this estate is on the up. Continually striving to raise the bar, in 2013 the estate became organically certified.

2019 is a small but brilliant vintage at Domaine Tortochot. Chantal has tweaked her winemaking style in recent years to adapt to the warm weather that is becoming the new norm in the region. Since the 2016 vintage she has incorporated 25% whole bunch fermented fruit because the stems, she explains, are a great source of mineral salts which leave a beautiful fresh, saline imprint on the wine. She has also reduced the proportion of new oak in the maturation process as, in these warmer vintages, the grapes easily reach phenolic maturity, and the tannins are already incredibly supple. Chantal’s 2019s are singing, showing incredible concentration and balance with a silken touch.

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    This centrally located Premier Cru is renowned for the generous style of its wines. The mix of sweet fruit compote and brambles makes this instantly gratifying. The ripe fruit is underpinned by an earthy rustic core, providing additional nuance and complexity. Striking and long, with mid-term drinking potential.

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    Lavaux St Jacques is one of Gevrey’s highest vineyards and is renowned for making wines of great refinement. The cooling high altitude is offset by its southerly exposure and has certainly made the most of the challenges of the climatic conditions in 2019. A strong attack of black forest fruits, this is wild and gamey with a central line of structured tannins. A wine of great depth and long-term ageing potential.

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    Morey St Denis’s 1er Cru Aux Charmes adjoins Mazoyères Grand Cru. Legend has it that if it had fallen within the more powerful parish of Gevrey Chambertin it would have been classified as a Grand Cru. A symphony of deep dark fruits, with flavours of Morello cherry and bilberry. The smooth tannins coat the palate beautifully. This is harmonious and graceful.

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    From three separate lieux dits in Morey St Denis: Aux Chesseaux, Clos des Ormes and Les Crais. A very approachable style, with soft succulent fruit characters, redolent of plums, sloes and damson. The tannins are beautifully ripe and have a svelte texture, delivering a wine with youthful approachability. Excellent value.
