  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    This is much more than an ordinary village cuvée. Indeed, it is one of the defining wines of the cellar. As the name suggests, it includes five parcels from across the Gevrey village, and is a triumphant display of the appellation’s character: mineral drive and savoury fruit walking hand in hand with firm but ripe, muscular tannins. These elements culminate in a perfectly balanced wine that will unfold over the years. The possessive ‘Mes’ in the name is a telling sign of how fondly cherished this wine is by the Mortet family.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 92-94

    They 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs was reduced by 30% production, with 30% whole bunch and 30% new oak. It has a well-defined blackberry and wild strawberry bouquet with subtle rose petal aromas. The palate is well balanced with supple red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, just a subtle chalkiness to the texture toward the finish, but a very mineral-rich aftertaste in situ. This is a replica of the brilliant 2015. Drink 2020-2035

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 88-91

    A ripe, fresh and airy nose features notes of red cherry, earth and plenty of sauvage character. The sleek, intense and muscular medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely sense of energy on the lingering if slightly warm finish. Drink: 2022+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 90-92

    Bright red-ruby. Very ripe black raspberry and chocolate aromas are lifted by a sexy floral perfume. Finer-grained and a bit more energetic than the négociant village Gevrey, displaying excellent delineation but also a velvety texture for 2016. I like the combination of medicinal reserve and ripe, integrated acidity here. The very long, slowly rising finish saturates the palate, leaving behind an almost port-like ripeness without any heaviness.

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.
