Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2013
Grown on stony soil with the top layer up to 40cm deep, the 2013 Les Champeaux displays dark fruits and a brodding style. With supple tannins and fresh berry scents, this is a complex wine from the attack to the finish that is very age-worthy.

About The Winery
Set up in 1956 with only a single hectare of vines, Charles the father, and Denis the son have look after the family estate together. In northern Burgundy’s Gevrey-Chambertin, where winemaking goes back to Roman times, Arnaud Mortet of Domaine Denis Mortet is a young vigneron, a third-generation winemaker who took over the family vineyards at age 26. He learned winemaking from his father, the legendary Denis Mortet, an intuitive craftsman who worked the land by himself. He was very quickly involved in bringing up a sustainable environment to Burgundy wines.
