2020 Domaine Tortochot Bourgogne Rouge, Burgundy, France

A nice accessible style showing the class and quality that Burgundy can offer but in a super expressive and affordable package! Raspberry coulis, lifted forest berries, Asian spice, a lick of oak. Soft, supple, not wrought with tannins nor austere acidity.



Fruit from vines planted in 2005 in Gevery-Chambertin which yield a more light, fruity style of red Burgundy.


Whilst Domaine Tortochot doesn’t carry the cachet of the very top domains in Gevrey Chambertin, it does offer some of the best value, producing wines with great terroir transparency in their top Premier Crus and Grand Crus and fabulous drinkability with their village wines. They are a domaine that truly excelled in 2018 and have continued that through this current vintage.

Their consistency in style is testament to the skills at work at the domaine. They have a distinct finesse and lightness of touch and the tannin profile remains incredibly elegant right through their portfolio of wines whilst the natural concentration of fruit and earthy minerality provide structure and intensity on the palate.

Celebrated winemaker in his own right Sylvain Pataille has been the consultant winemaker at the domaine for the last 20 years alongside owner and winemaker Chantal Tortochot, who has a real energy and honesty to her approach. Whilst the team have been working together for 20 years, in the last 5 years they have amended their winemaking to accommodate the obvious climatic changes they see affecting this new era of Burgundy.
