About

94

"Pure cherry, raspberry and stony mineral flavors are the hallmarks of this juicy red, with a firm, well-integrated structure. Combines elegance and muscle. The finish is dense and long. Best from 2022 through 2036. 143 cases imported."

90 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"Outstanding. Sweet Spot. From parcels within Jouises, Epointures, Aux Echézeaux, La Justice, Les Platières, Combe du Dessus, and En Champ.

The expressive nose is ripe and ultra-fresh with its aromas of violet, plum, earth, red and dark cherry and humus. There is excellent volume to the attractively energetic medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract as well as a subtle minerality on the complex, detailed, persistent and highly refreshing finish as one just feels like drinking this. Recommended.

This is a brand new label if not exactly a brand new domaine as it evolved from ArnaudMortet having taken over another 4 ha of vines from a vigneron that was retiring. The parcels included a number of villages level vineyards as well as .45 ha in Mazoyères, .27 ha in Charmes-Chambertin plus a parcel in the 1er La Perrière. See the write-up for Domaine Denis Mortet for more information on ArnaudMortet's views on the 2017 vintage. Note I reviewed one '16 now in bottle. ”
