About The Domaine:
Domaine Thierry Mortet was officially created in 1992, when Thierry's father retired and his estate was divided between his two sons. Before joining his partners and brother at the domaine, Thierry studied enology and viticulture in Beaune.

Thierry uses Burgundy barrels from Rousseau et Toutan, one third new each year. He uses classic winemaking techniques: pre-fermentation maceration for 3 or 4 days, total fermentation time of 2 weeks. The grapes are harvested by hand, sorted and 100% de-stemmed. The result is expressive, full-bodied, generous, pure wines, which generally age well for 6-7 years.

Tasting Notes:
The wine offers a subtle and complex nose. It displays a sweet and delicate mouthfeel. Very nice wine with black fruit aromas. Dense, good concentration. Good length and well integrated oak.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
""Flint, dark stone and tar notions flash momentarily at the first sniff of this wine, before red-cherry notions with an edge of dark chocolate take over. The palate expresses itself in juicy, rounded but still fresh fruit that is dense and smooth at its core, ripe and dusted with cocoa. Tannins are fine and seemingly elastic, smoothing the fruit and concentration." - Anne Krebiehl (12/2020)

90+ Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Vigne Belle (such a charming name!) Offers high-toned, iodine-tinged red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy tannins, moderate weight with hints of cedar and tobacco towards the finish where I would like to see more flesh. Not bad, but I think some bottle age will see some improvement in this cuvée." - Neal Martin (1/2020)
