  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    Arnaud’s cuvée is made up of five bands of vines that are scattered across this substantial cru’s slope and make an exquisite example of this most lauded of premiers crus. The bold fruit intensity of dark wild berries is supported by 70% new oak. This is deep, soulful Pinot Noir.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 94-96

    The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques was affected by 50% to 60% because of the frost, with 20% whole bunch and 70% new oak. It has a very crystalline bouquet with perfumed dark berry fruit, crushed stone and hints of violet that just deliver stupendous precision. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety smooth entry and great depth, with the new oak nicely integrated, although maybe I might have chucked a few more stems in the vat on the finish? Still, this has great potential, a magnificent Lavaux Saint-Jacques that will dazzle for many years to come. Drink 2021-2040

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 91-93

    An ultra-floral and highly restrained nose offers up aromas of airy and cool essence of red currant, freshly turned earth, humus and forest floor scents. The intense, powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that buffers the firm tannic spine on the austere and serious finish. In sum this is a classically styled LSJ. Outstanding. Drink: 2026+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 90-93

    ild, slightly porty aromas of kirsch, licorice, violet and game. Suave and fine-grained on entry, then tight, youthful and primary in the middle palate, conveying a slightly rustic quality to its flavors of blackberry, blueberry and animal fur. This is distinctly more imploded today than the Champeaux, as well as very ripe and a bit reduced. Here the tannins are a bit tough and medicinal but the finish builds impressively. Difficult to assess in its current phase. Incidentally, Mortet will bottle these two grape sources separately in 2017, one under the Domaine Denis Mortet label and the other under Arnaud 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.Read less

Region

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.
