  • Neal Martin, December 2016, Score: 96-98

    The 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, another métayage with the Mazis-Chambertin that debuted last year, comes from a mid-slope parcel on the Terre Blanche. It is matured in 70% new oak with 40-50% whole bunches. The bouquet is very pure with blackberry, blueberry, candied orange peel and rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with velvety tannin, enormous depth and brilliant precision and tension. This might well constitute the best Bonnes-Mares of the vintage, the finish tingling with energy and concentration. As Kate Bush once sang...wow. Drink 2022-2047

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 95

    This is quite ripe as there are notes of mocha and wood to the plum liqueur, spice and rose petal-suffused nose. This is rich to the point of opulence and this impression of lavishness is accentuated by the presence of copious quantities of dry extract that renders the very firm tannic spine all but invisible today on the strikingly long and well-balanced finish. This is a relatively refined Bonnes Mares but even so it will certainly require extended cellaring to reach its peak. However, for those who enjoy younger fruit, the sappy mouthfeel should allow this to be enjoyed on the earlier side. Drink 2029+

  • Stephen Tanzer, November 2017, Score: 95+

    (50% destemmed by hand with a secateur): Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Sexy, carnal aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and chocolate, with superripe porty and resiny suggestions and an oaky element. Large-scaled and thick but the dark fruit, mocha and brown spice flavors are energized by outstanding mineral lift. Finishes with substantial dusty, fine-grained tannins and rising, unflagging length. This is nearly impossible to scrape off your palate--but why would you want to? This hugely dense, classically dry Bonnes-Mares will need a good decade in the cellar to express its inherent complexity.

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.Read less
