In the vineyard chez Mortet, much continues as it did under his father Denis, as Allen Meadows reported back in 2009: andldquo;grower after grower spoke admiringly of how Arnaud has picked up right where his father left off. I should add that compliments from colleagues when it concerns vineyard work are given sparingly in Burgundy.andrdquo;andnbsp; Hard work and constant contact and familiarity with the vines are as important as ever here. The main change over the past few vintages has been in the cellar, where Arnaud has strayed from his father's tendency towards pushed extraction and toasty new wood towards a more finessed, subtle and lifted wine. Though his father was leaning more towards this style in his later vintages, Arnaud has really seen it through. The wines are still very much intense, but they are not as brooding and dark-fruited in their youth as they were under Denis. This change in style is in no small part thanks to the guidance of one of his closest friends and mentors, Eric Rousseau.

Lots of oak but so much lovely fruit and vigor. This should be great in 5 years.

Coming from another one of MANY, MANY, MANY Burg tastings were the crowd dislikes the wines!!!!! What do they know? There is no instant gratification with these and they are not sweetish NAPA Cabs. This one is really impressive. Tart now but will be awesome in 4-6 years. Denis Mortet is growing on me. There is a lot going on here dried basil, cherry, cranberries and power this wine will turn around and really surprise. Now tart chalky, cranberry underbrush. A good investment for burgundy price levels.

Healthy medium red. Musky aromas of black cherry, smoke, mocha and sweet oak. A tightly coiled wine of moderate flesh, this village bottling offers nicely delineated flavors of dark berries, licorice, bitter chocolate and earth complicated by a saline minerality that no doubt comes from the higher-altitude parcels that go into the blend. This very successful village wine should maintain its energy. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar 2017)

Good example of a (young) Gevry (good, but somewhat unremarkable). Should go well with the veal course coming up!
