04 thierry mortet gevrey-chambertin


The garden looked pretty with snow, so I pulled out a hearty, warming 2004 – oops, should have been the 2005. Never-mind. I can open that at the weekend.
2004 Thierry Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin try to find this wine...
Medium colour. The nose has more than a hint of 2004 about it, plenty of high-toned cedar but a quick swirl displays the frankly lovely red berry/cherry fruit below. In the mouth it’s a little mineral and perhaps a hint flimsy in the concentration department, but despite that, the flavours are really long in the finish. Slowly the palate’s texture apparently thickens with concentration. If you’re immune to the 2004 cedar it’s a buy.
Rebuy – No

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
