2010 Vigne Belle Domaine Thierry Mortet
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Thierry descibes this as being the 'terroir le plus fin de Gevrey', (by which he means it gives the wines of the greatest finesse). It is a Chambolle-like in its delicacy, but with a bit more force on the finish, cherry-taut but with a cassis blackness to the expression and tangy, lively acidity. L&S (Dec 2011)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Thierry Mortet
Thierry continues to be praised in the French press without ever quite seeming to crack the influential American journalists. It may be simply because he is a bit short of fancy appellations - one little cuvée of Grand Cru would no doubt do his reputation a lot of good - but might also put his prices up, and these remain very modest. Three or four days of cold maceration are followed by two weeks of fermentation, with just a touch of cooling to keep the temperature around 31-33C (below 35, at least), then into barrel, all second use or older for the Bourgogne, with 30% new wood on the Gevrey, and 50% on the Clos Prieur. Certified organic and in biodynamic conversion.

Relatively pale crimson. Real energy here. But also lots of acid. This needs time. 2016-2022 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
