About the wine: 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 about 30 000 bottles a year. Thierry produce only about 750 bottles of Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur made of unique 70 years old vines.  

Taste like: This a stuning Gevrey 1er Cru probably one of the best example from Clos Prieur vineyards. Intense black, notes of dark chocolate, elegantly smoky with a mix of small dark berries. Beautiful volume mid palate, depth, fleshiness, again dark fruits, followed by an incredible lenght and persitance with final terroir vibrancy character. This is one of these rare wines that have it all: concentration, finesse and power. 

When to drink: Drink now or in the next 10-15 years.

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