If you like: Fine red wine from Burgundy! Mortet is a family name intimately connected to Gevrey-Chambertin. Charles Mortet started the success story in 1956 with a single hectare of vines. Then in 1992 is splitted the vineyard in beetween his two sons; Denis, and Thierry the youngest started his own Domaine that now produce only 30 000 bottles a year. Thierry's Gevrey-Chambertin 'Vigne Belle' is made out of small plot of 40 and 30 acres averaging 30 years old, only 3000 to 3500 bottles yearly. The vines are planted on clay and limestone soils with small rocks. This Mortet's Gevrey-Chambertin 'Vigne Belle' give us one of the finest expression at village level. 'Vigne Belle' is not a 1er Cru however its a standout site with unique personality, not far from 1er Cru Clos Prieur.

Taste like: Subtle smokiness with complex earthy notes. Soft, fleshy on the palate with lovely volume, fine tannins, complexity and a lenght similar to the 1er Cru from Gevrey. Purity and elegance with no overextraction but still plenty of character. This is a must taste if you like Gevrey-Chambertin's wines.

When to drink: Now or in the next 10 years.

Service: 15 to 16 degrees C, large Burgundy glass. Decant when young.

Food match: Boeuf bourguignon, slow cooked stew, duck breast or duck legs.
