The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroir comes from five parcels from around the appellation and it includes 30% whole bunch and 30% new oak. It has a vibrant bouquet, a melange of blue and black fruit that lends it a Fixin-like personality. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin that are filigree. This has a silky texture, perfectly judged acidity and disarming purity on the finish. This is premier cru quality—period. It is not a question of whether Arnaud Mortet's 2015 Burgundies kicked arse...but how much. I was totally blown away by these wines that represent the best ever from the domaine. It is not so much a case of a stellar 100-pointers. Perhaps I was anticipating a score in that rarefied air as I approached the grand crus, and they were not quite there. Rather, it is the consistency amongst the village and premier crus that punched well above their wait, forcing me to give scores that might raise a few eyebrows amongst those in the misguided belief that all Burgundy wines adhere to the hierarchy: generic < village < premier < grand cru. These were thrilling wines that sent tingles of pleasure down my spine. (NM)
Round and silky, this red delivers brilliant cherry and currant flavors wrapped in a coating of sweet spices. Dense without sacrificing a fluid impression. Firms up on the lingering finish. (BS)
Bright, dark red. Superripe-verging-on-liqueur-like but with lovely perfumed lift to its cherry, red berry and dark chocolate aromas. Wonderfully dense, sappy, concentrated wine with serious medicinal reserve and surprising framing acidity to its deep core of dark fruit, mineral and spice flavors. As ripe as this is, it does not pass into surmaturité. Finishes with substantial ripe, dusty tannins and terrific length. A splendid village wine with the density and depth to age. (ST)
Stern, robust, dense cherry nose, lightly marked by the 30% new oak. Rich and rounded, full-bodied and generous, this is imposing and impressive for a village wine. Lively acidity lifts the finish and keeps it harmonious and balanced. Drinking Window 2018 - 2028
(from En Motrot, En Derée, Combe de Dessus, Au Vellé and En Champs; 30% whole cluster). A ripe yet reasonably fresh nose is composed of notes of plum, warm earth and violet. There is good size, weight and power to the solidly concentrated and well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent complexity and length for a villages level Gevrey. This excellent effort should drink well both young and with age is and well worth your attention. 2023+
*Quite Good Value* Rich and rewarding. Spicy and fun.
