About

93

"The Mortet 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques invokes ripe, bitter-sweet mulberry wreathed in wood smoke, its low-toned suggestions of roasted, charred meats and wet stone making for a deep if somewhat austere impression. The finesse of the tannins here is noteworthy and the palate-staining finish entices and intrigues you into the next sip without a moment's pause to remove any tiny splinters or assuage finishing roughness. In fact, the personality of this Lavaux is remarkably similar to that of its 2005 counterpart, if with less sheer intensity and considerably less complexity. I would recommend granting it at least 3-4 years' stay of uncorking, and then plan to savor it over the following half dozen or so."

"Good red-ruby. Currant, black raspberry, iron and coffee on the nose. Supple, sweet and lightly gamey. Shows less thrust in the mid-palate than the Champeaux but broadens out nicely on the back end, finishing with excellent length and a lingering note of torrefaction" -89-92 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
