Domaine Denis Mortet, Marsannay Les Longeroies, 2014
The 2014 Marsannay les Longerois, which will be bottled in February, was matured in 20% new oak. It has a very pure and comely bouquet with raspberry preserve and fresh strawberry - instantly seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, blackberry and raspberry fruit, and it exudes precision on the 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.
