2017 Thierry Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France

This wine is made from 20 different parcels of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin. It would be hard to find a better example of Gevrey village’s famous diversity. Pure and open, intense blackberry and black currant, a touch of licorice.


Thierry Mortet took over his half of the family domain, Domaine Charles Mortet et Fils in 1992 with 4 hectares of vines. He now oversees 7.3 hectares (just under 17 acres) of production, 6 ha in red and the rest in white, for an annual production of 30-35000 bottles. When he officially converted his domain to organic agriculture in 2007, he was merely codifying practices that he had already been following for years out of respect for the environment and an understanding of the cultural significance of his work.
