Chambertin, Domaine Denis Mortet 2017

Tasting Notes

There are three new barrels of the 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru, an integrated but reserved wine that offers up notes of dried rose petals, grilled meats, espresso roast and sweet berries. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and satiny, with excellent depth and a tight-knit core that's framed by a fine but firm chassis of structuring tannins. Less forthcoming than the Mazis-Chambertin and Bonnes-Mares, it likely also has a longer future.

3 barrels. Medium deep red, nothing more than the others. The nose however tells a different story with an explosion of pure ripe strawberries, detailed and elegant. Then a really stylish, elegant mouthful, perhaps more alpine strawberries, but it is more a question of the delicacy and detail while retaining intensity. Certainly quite ripe fruit.
