The Mortets are related to the famous Rousseau family and like the Rousseaus they oversee a stunning Gevrey based Domaine. The wines typically show great concentration and power with nice elegance.
Not known for their whites this is the real deal. 100 per cent fermented in barrel giving spicy but well-integrated oak. It’s beautifully aromatic with zesty lemon and orange notes complementing those gentle toasty nuances, while in the palate it has the thrilling cut and drive of 2010 written all over it. The vines that produce this wine are located in Daix, the Mortet family’s native town, northwest of Dijon. They are situated around 400m on very chalky soils. Both of these factors explain the minerality and drive of this wine.
