Domaine Denis Mortet was formed in 1992 on the retirement of Charles Mortet in 1991, who divided his Estate between his two sons; Denis and Thierry. Starting with just 4.5ha Denis build the estate to over 11ha including both owned and under tenancy. From the start Denis developed strong relationships and was highly influenced by Henri Jayer and Lalou Bize-Leroy.
Denis was a gifted viticulturalist with meticulous attention to detail working with very low yields and severe fruit selection resulting in rich and seductive wines with harmonious and elegant textures. The Domaine developed the reputation as one of Burgundy’s very best and the wines quickly became some of the most sought after by all lovers of the very top Burgundies. Tragically, Denis took his own life in 2006, but his work has been continued by his son Arnaud, daughter Clémence and wife Laurence.
We are delighted to offer an incredibly rare vertical of Chambertin from just a 0.15ha plot with an average annual production of just 750 bottles. Denis crafted one of the greatest examples from this hallowed vineyard, epitomising the very best characteristics and now between 20-25 years these are just about reaching perfection.
