2006 Mortet Thierry, Gevrey-Chambertin Vigne BelleDec. 2008
Medium ruby rather than cherry-red. The nose is very tight, a few high tones but little else. In the mouth this is nicely fresh with more intensity and dimension than the ‘basic’ villages. Plenty of structure – will need a few years ‘rest’ in the cellar – it’s very good.
2005 Mortet Thierry, Gevrey-Chambertin Vigne BelleNov. 2007
High tones and faint undergrowth on the nose. This is riper and more concentrated that the ‘basic’ Gevrey, grainy tannin but good intensity. Some character too!
