2016 - Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru, Mes Cinq Terroirs
- Cote de Nuits
- 90-92 ST
(30% vendange entier): Bright red-ruby. Very ripe black raspberry and chocolate aromas are lifted by a sexy floral perfume. Finer-grained and a bit more energetic than the négociant village Gevrey, displaying excellent delineation but also a velvety texture for 2016. I like the combination of medicinal reserve and ripe, integrated acidity here. The very long, slowly rising finish saturates the palate, leaving behind an almost port-like ripeness without any heaviness.
