Goedhuis, November 2018
This great grand cru needs no introduction and Chantal Tortochot’s 2017 is an exceptional example. The smoky oak aromas are quite apparent in its youth, but these will integrate in time with its deep concentration of fruit, which currently commands the palate. This is a wine for the long term. It has masses of dark spiced berry fruits and a powerful yet poised tannic structure.
Jancis Robinson, January 2019,
Lovely fragrance of sweet, tangy pure red fruit and the freshness of stems in moderation. Chewy, intense and fresh on the palate, a great balance in an embryonic wine with great promise. Drink 2023-2035
This is a substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine with 12 hectares that include some of the finest premiers and grands crus in the village. Previously Chantal Tortochot’s father Gabriel sold most of his fruit to the famous Beaune négociant, Joseph Drouhin. Since taking over in 2001 Chantal has been carefully and surely building the domaine’s name and reputation around the world. In 2013 the estate became organically certified. Chantal favours early bottling to capture the fruit purity.
Gevrey Chambertin lies well to the north of the Cote de Nuits. It has no less than 9 grand cru vineyards and the most famous of these is Chambertin. Often considered the greatest of all red Burgundies for its complexity, power and intensity, Chambertin's fine wines are unsurprisingly rare and are priced accordingly. They also need years to develop to their full potential, but are undoubtedly worth the wait.
