    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Champeaux is tucked up at the north end of the Combe St Jacques in northern Gevrey Chambertin and Arnaud’s parcel ranges from 70 – 100 year old vines. With hints of redcurrants and cranberries, this is a wine of delicious purity, with a taut tannic core. A touch of toasty new oak gives warmth to the palate. A style that really lifts the spirits.

    The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux 1er Cru comes from 70- to 80-year-old vines in the four corners of the vineyard, matured with 25–30% whole bunches and 60% new oak. It has a classy, beautifully defined bouquet that features crystalline red berry fruit and superb mineralité, the stem addition seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins and silky in texture. Pure and elegant, with a very sustained finish. Stunning. 2022 - 2044

    This is also aromatically super-fresh with a lovely mélange of plum, dark raspberry and earth that is trimmed in just enough wood to merit pointing out. The racy, intense and beautifully stony medium weight flavors exhibit focused power on the long and chiseled finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. This too is very good. Drink 2030+. Sweet spot Outstanding.

    Mortet's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux derives from a parcel planted more than 80 years ago, and as usual it's one of the more muscular, age-worthy wines in the range. Unfurling in the glass with notes of cherries, woodsmoke, cassis, candied citrus peel and incense, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with velvety tannins, impressive concentration and succulent acids.

    4 different plots, all old vines between 60 to 80 years, worked by hand and by horse. The two bigger plots are each in their own clos with 20cm earth while the two smaller plots are lower down with a touch more soil. Wood reduction, will be racked soon, nothing has been so far. Bottle April. A very elegant wine beneath, with a good thread of acidity balancing the ripe dark fruit. Very extensive finish. Lovely.

Producer

Domaine Denis 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.

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.
