2017 Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs
Once again there is a discreet but not invisible touch of wood framing the notably earthier and more deeply pitched aromas of both red and dark currant and forest floor nuances. There is fine intensity and solid concentration to the vibrant middle weight flavors that reflect ample minerality, all wrapped in a focused, complex and lengthy finish that flashes unusually good power for a villages level wine. As it usually is, this is a fine effort and well worth considering.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Tasted from bottle, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs is showing well, bursting with expressive aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, orange rind and licorice, framed by a deft touch of classy new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and charming, with succulent acids, ripe and powdery tannins and good depth at the core. While this is a serious effort, it will drink well with only a couple of years in bottle.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2020)
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin "Mes Cinq Terroirs" comes from vineyards in the northern slopes towards Brochon and includes 20% whole bunches and raised in 30% new oak. It offers brambly black fruit on the nose with just a hint of iodine that emerges with aeration. The palate is quite sharp and citric on the entry with compact red berry fruit tinged with cola and balanced. It may be missing the persistence on the finish of the previous two vintages. Fine.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Rich fresh purple, very pretty juicy dark fruited nose, but then a rougher grainier texture, not as succulent as last year, a few tannins extant, a little heady, good length.
