Five-star wine. Impressive dense purple, this has a magical suavity of dark dense fruit with elegance and balance, really classy. I was going to say that Mes Cinq Terroirs was a textbook Gevrey but it is better than that. 92-95 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
Always more than the sum of its parts, it’s an eminently affordable way to experience the talents of this remarkable young winemaker. Tangy, sweet and refreshing, with raspberry, red cherry and aniseed notes and beautifully applied 30% new wood. 93 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs unwinds in the glass with a deep bouquet of cherries, cassis, orange rind, rich soil tones and smoke. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a promising sense of structural reserve despite its exuberant core of fruit. This is a fine rendition of Mortet’s emblematic communal bottling and vindicates his decision to harvest early. 90-93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
This is Mortet’s ‘super Gevrey’ and comes from a clutch of five brilliantly placed plots that Denis Mortet deliberately chose for the quality of their terroirs and vines. The vineyards include En Motrot, situated between the church and Château de Gevrey-Chambertin close to Clos Saint-Jacques; Au Vellé, very close-by under Petits Cazetiers; Combe-du-Dessus, situated at the top of the Brochon slope just north-east of Gevrey itself; En Champs directly below Gevrey’s 1er Cru Champeaux (the vines here are over 70 years old); and En Dérée, below En Champs on the Brochon border.
Only 30% new barrels were used here and 15% whole berries (hand-destemmed). This is simply outstanding, and would have no problem passing for 1er Cru status in a blind line-up. Deep and layered, the notes below sum things up beautifully.
Three Wishes, Waverley, Jinglers Creek, Evandale Estate, Fishook and Woodlawn Park all contributed here, little parcels of fruit that span pretty much the whole valley. That makes this the most expansive version of TMV produced thus far. Patches from my own four sites joined forces with a couple of growers to paint my version of […]Add to cart Producer: Two Tonne Tasmania
Outstanding. Top value. This is aromatically even fresher with its relatively high-toned nose of cranberry, pomegranate and soft earth and spice wisps. There is both good intensity and minerality suffusing the slightly denser flavors that firm up noticeably on the mildly rustic, focused and more complex finale. This is quite good for the genre and worth […]Add to cart Producer: Francois Lamarche

At an average age of 60 years old, Chandon de Briailles’ has some of the oldest vines in the Clos du Roi. This is a vineyard situated high on the Corton slope. The soil is rich in white Bathonian limestone and it’s these rocky origins, the high altitude and the south east aspect of the […]Add to cart Producer: Chandon de Briailles
