Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2011

    Marsannay might be one of the least known appellations in the Côte de Nuits, but if every producer made one like this, it would not be the case for much longer. Beautifully velvety with a polished palate of sweet fleshy fruit and an extroverted core. Though only a ‘village' level, even Arnauddescribes this as more like a 1er Cru.

    Score: 90-92

    Tasted out of barrel at the Domaine. Raised in 30% new oak, the Marsannay Les Longeroies has a lifted bouquet, a little malic at the moment but fresh with black cherries and a touch of violet. The palate displays good structure, a slightly grainy mouthfeel, which adds to the tension. Good mineralité and poise towards the finish. Recommended.

  • BURG1

    Burghound, January 2012,
    Score: 88

    A discreet touch of wood sets off very ripe yet reasonably fresh aromas of cassis and black raspberry that complement the equally ripe and liqueur-like flavors that exude a damp earthiness on the suave, extremely rich and mildly rustic finish. This displays good verve and power though limited depth. Drink: 2015+.

Producer

Domaine Denis Mortet

For many years, Dénis Mortet worked passionately to create one of the most sought after domaines in Burgundy. He learned about winemaking while working with his father Charles, a cousin of Charles Rousseau. From the early 1990s he built his vineyard area to almost 10 hectares dispersed throughout Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot, Fixin and Marsannay. 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. Sadly, he has not lived to see his results. After his tragic death in 2006 at the age of just 51, his son, Arnaud, took over vineyard management and winemaking. Since then, this domaine has been soaring to ever-greater heights. In Dénis’s era the wines had been admired for their opulence, but in the past decade Arnaud has redefined the Mortet style as one that ascends towards a pinnacle of finesse and elegance. The dextrous handling of each parcel means the Fixin and Marsannay are as interesting talking points as the Lavaux St Jacques and Clos de Vougeot. The domaine has forged a reputation for organic viticulture par excellence, and the dedicated work in the vineyards is abundantly clear in the cellar. Arnaud has an astonishing gift for managing whole bunch fruit and matching new oak to his pure, crystalline wines.

Region

Marsannay

The most northerly appellation of the Cote d'Or, Marsannay is also the only appellation authorised to produce red, white and rose wine. Only created in 1987, this is an interesting area where quality is improving. Top producers include Bruno Clair, Meo-Camuzet and Denis Mortet.
