Goedhuis, December 2012
From vines situated high up behind the church of Gevrey, this is a complex and finely tuned wine. With dense black fruit flavours, there is an appealing bite of freshness, with the lasting sensations of sweet ripe fruits and firm rounded tannins.
Burghound, January 2013,
Generous amounts of wood fight slightly with the otherwise very fresh aromas of plum, wet stone, dark berries and humus. There is excellent richness to the mineral-driven medium-bodied flavorsthat possess excellent energy on the supple and suave mid-palate that possesses a relatively sophisticated mouth feel before culminating in a well-balanced and persistent finish. Even though the Lavaut is consistently Mortet’s best 1er, today it’s no more complex or persistent than the Champeaux. Drink 2021+

Rich and concentrated and sweet. Thoroughly satisfying. Except for the price. Prunes though certainly not luscious. Drink 2017-2027
Domaine Claude Dugat
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.
