Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Domaine Denis Mortet 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This plush red is infused with plum, blackberry, smoke and spice flavors, well-constituted with acidity and tannins. This tightens up on the finish, as plum and spice notes return on the tobaccotinged aftertaste...91" WS 05/12 "Good deep, fresh red. Lively aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol. Silky-sweet on the palate, with solid minerality enlivening the black raspberry and licorice flavors. Densely packed wine with lovely emerging perfume of lavender, spices and white pepper. Finishes with ripe tannins. The crop level was a very-low-for-the-vintage 35 hectoliters per hectare due to the high percentage of tiny berries, noted Mortet. A superb showing today for this village offering...91" IWC 03/12 "The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes across a soft, delicate and ready to go. Sweet floral notes add lift as the wine fleshes out nicely on the finish. The Vieilles Vignes shows plenty of 2009 character its round, inviting personality...91" WA 04/12

Reduction blocks the nose but there is excellent vibrancy and punch to the intensely mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess fine delineation and a lovely sense of underlying tension on the complex, persistent and palate staining finish....

The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques is impeccably balanced from start to finish. Firm, yet elegant, tannins support a dark, round core of fruit as this muscular wine opens up in the glass. This turns positively exuberant on the long, captiv... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2009 Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St Jacques 750ml
