2005 Chambertin Grand Cru Domaine Denis Mortet 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2005 Chambertin Grand Cru from Burgundy, bottled by Domaine Denis Mortet.
The late Denis Mortet was extremely highly regarded as a producer of concentrated, long-lived Burgundies made from meticulously maintained and low yielding vineyards.
'Kirsch, brown spice, floral perfume, and chalk dust aromas lead to a rich palate also much marked by high-toned distilled pit fruits and an overtly chalky, stony undertone that beautifully accentuates the extravagance of the fruit. Intense cherry and chalk persistence is augmented by marrowy, sweet meatiness. Mortet’s avowed intention is to vinify Le Chambertin that out-charms Charmes-Chambertin, and he has admirably succeeded. 95-96/100' Wine Advocate, 2007
