Domaine Denis Mortet – ‘Ma cuvée’ 2021 – Gevrey Chambertin

This estate makes 2 cuvées in the village of Gevrey village. “Mes Cinques Terroirs” comes from parcels in the southern part, and ‘Ma cuvée’ is from the northern part. Arnaud Mortet has perfectly interpreted the character of this delicate vintage, while keeping his own dense style. It is true that its colour, its first nose and its attack are light and discreet compared to the wines of recent years. But its aroma of red berries is extremely subtle and refined. On the palate, this wine is reminiscent of ‘dashi’ (a basic broth in Japanese cuisine), i.e. it is not powerful but has the concentration of umami. Its texture is dense like tightly woven silk. Very pleasant finish.
