Chambertin, Domaine Denis Mortet 2013

Tasting Notes

**Note: from a single .15 ha parcel of 50+ year old vines located near the southern end of the appellation; 100% new wood**
A cool, pure and wonderfully elegant nose displays notes of airy red and black pinot fruit, humus, smoked meat, spice and a pretty floral nuance, all of which is trimmed in enough wood to notice. Here too there is good richness to the strikingly intense, powerful and serious big-bodied flavors that are constructed on a firm base of minerality while being shaped by ripe tannins on the driving, balanced and beautifully persistent finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose reappears. A classic Chambertin of power and grace.
