With 50% whole bunches and 70% new oak. Textured, fine and assertive, with filigree tannins and bright, refreshing acidity.

Denis Mortet was one of the most important and influential domaines in the 20th century with a real ‘cult’ status. Indeed, Denis was a great friend and mentored by Henri Jayer. He also had a chance to learn from Lalou Bize-Leroy from Domaine Leroy and Romanée-Conti. Now you understand why this Domaine makes fabulous wine bottles! Denis’ son, Arnaud, worked with him since 1999 and took over the domaine in 2006. Brilliant fruit-driven wines that are bordering on the supernatural. All Mortet wines can be recognised by their velvety structure and their elegance!

Arnaud keeps the yields very low, uses gentle macerations and a small percentage of new oak barrels. He sorts his fruits 3 times to make sure that all his grapes are perfect. Wines are matured on fine lees with just a single racking before bottling. Therefore, the fruit is full-flavoured and fresh with round tannins.
Should be served between 15 to 16 degrees.
It's a Grand Cru, so you can pair it with more elaborate dishes (made for special occasions) like white truffle pasta, beef with foie gras on top, any type of cheese or with chocolate desserts.
