Average critic rating : 88.0 points



The generic Mortet 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin consists in a compilation from all of his younger vines, and represents nearly half of his total production in Gevrey appellations. Ripe dark cherry and blackberry tinged accented by brown spices and smoked meat in the nose migrate to a substantial, rich, meaty palate (in no way the sort one associates with "young vines") whereon tart fruit skin and spice offer invigoration. This falls down just a bit in the finish, however, by revealing a slight dry spot. Perhaps a bit more time post-bottling will have covered that, but I am skeptical. ||For his first entirely solo vintage, Arnaud Mortet was saddled with a load of challenges, most notably the legacy of hail in so many of his vineyards. His reaction was to back off on extraction and new wood, trends which he seems inclined to continue pursuing even in less tricky vintages. He opines that the "acid structure" of his 2006s – which are also amply endowed with largely fine-grained tannins – will help them age well. Wine Advocate.December, 2009
