Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs 2013
Matured in 30% new oak and racked after malolactic at the end of August, it has a well-defined, precise and yet intense bouquet with pure red cherry and wild strawberry scents. There are tangible mineral notes that translate onto the palate defined by taut tannins and a silver thread of acidity. The finish is both poised and linear, completing what is a welcome return for one of Mortet's best cuvées.

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.
