Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs 2014
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs is a blend of all Arnaud's Gevrey-Chambertin holdings. His late father Denis bottled them separately until 2004 and 2005 when he elected to blend them together - with Arnaud following in his path, correctly in my humble opinion. Matured in 30% to 35% new oak, it has a brisk, stony red berry bouquet with attractive undergrowth scents percolating through. Very natural. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp structure, almost chalky tannin, very fine acidity, and a little compact towards the finish but it maintains precision from start to 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.
