2017 Chambertin Grand Cru Domaine Denis Mortet 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru from Burgundy, vinified by Arnaud Mortet and 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.
'The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru contains 40-50% whole bunches and is matured in 100% new oak (the only cuvée to do so.) It has quite an intense bouquet and as you would expect, the new wood is expressed as much as the fruit at the moment. With time, scents of tobacco and undergrowth emerge. The palate is very well balanced with grippy tannin, quite saline in the mouth with plenty of tightly-wound, detailed black fruit towards the lengthy finish. It will require several years in bottle but will be worth the wait. Drinking Window: 2023-2045. 95-97/100.' Neal Martin, Vinous, 2019
