2011 1er Cru Clos Prieur Domaine Thierry Mortet
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
A dark, wild muscular syle on the nose. Palate is still silky and easy, but there is another level of richness and power. Dark fruit and dark truffly notes. Fleshy and rich. Ripe Cassis, ripe blackberry, even a hint of blackberry leaf. Echoing finish. L&S (Jan 2013)
*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.
