Domaine Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru 1999

Imported by Wine Cellars LTD., Briarcliff Manor NY.

Ruby. Fundamental and reduced on entry, a wine of shoulder thickness still. Then it throttles up with vigor, markedly smoky, cassis flavors with a hint of black olive, such is the ripeness. Assured gras richness and warm all the way through. It’s still centered on it’s fruit, not as weightless as either ’93 or ’95 but it ends on liberty. Now – 2030+.
