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)
This is also quite restrained and cool with a similar aromatic profile. There is however more 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 is outstanding and well worth your attention.
(30% vendange entier; 30% new oak; a blend of five lieux-dits from the Brochon side of Gevrey-Chambertin, with the vines averaging 60 to 70 years of age): Bright red with ruby highlights. Classic, inviting, ripe Gevrey aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, chocolate and minerals. Fine-grained, sappy and savory, with lovely mineral lift to its dark berry flavors. Here the substantial tannins are more refined than those of the Marsannay, giving this lovely village wine a distinctly suave character. (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
