Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2014
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux comes from 60 to 100-year-old vines on four different blocks in the corners of the vineyard, where the soil worked by horse as there is no access into the vineyard for a vehicle. It has a stoic, mineral bouquet that expresses the limestone mother-rock in this vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, crisp acidity, superb mineralité, and the 40% new oak seamless is integrated on the crystalline finish.

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.
