Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    Morey St Denis’s 1er Cru Aux Charmes adjoins Mazoyères Grand Cru. Legend has it that if it had fallen within the more powerful parish of Gevrey Chambertin it would have been classified as a Grand Cru. A symphony of deep dark fruits, with flavours of Morello cherry and bilberry. The smooth tannins coat the palate beautifully. This is harmonious and graceful.

Producer

Domaine Tortochot

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.

Region

Morey-Saint-Denis

Morey St. Dénis often suffers from an identity crisis. They are more fruit forward than the wines of Gevrey Chambertin, yet more structured than those of Chambolle Musigny. It seems in this sensethat they are like middle children, always wanting to please yet not standing out as the noisy one or the notably quiet one. They are however crowd pleasers and for those who feel that Gevreys are too muscular and Chambolles too feminine; Moreys seem just right, offering velvety tannins and tangible fruit. The village offers five grand cru vineyards including Clos de la Roche, Clos St. Dénis and Clos des Lambrays which nonetheless can rival those of neighbouring villages in terms of quality (some even view them as the best in the Côte de Nuits) and various premier cru vineyards.
