Still very pale and not evolved. The rich material and high acidities have not converged yet. The fruit here is not as pristine as those from the likes of Fichet and Montille. — 6 days ago

Of course the 2014 Chaillot is in its early stages (although it is considered to be an early maturing and approachable vintage for Northern Rhône), but a multi-hour pre-dinner decant served it well as it was very open, giving and multidimensional showing great depth, power and an elegant backbone. Black raspberries, liquid stones, violets and a hint of black olive. There is a great midpalate richness leading to a long, finessed and lifted finish. — 21 days ago
Silky, elegant Pinot Noir by Thierry Mortet, Denis Mortet’s younger brother. This wine comes from a 0.22 hectare plot in Aux Beaux Bruns, one of Chambolle-Musigny’s 25 officially classified premier crus and at little over 1 hectare, also one of the smallest. Domaine Denise Mortet owns another 0.22 hectares in this climat - I suppose, the other half of parcel split between the two brothers when their father Charles Mortet retired in 1991. Delicate. Ripe black fruit, smoke and pepper aromas. Very smooth tannins, good length and satin-like finish.

Really solid. Some body, mouth watering, balanced minerality and fruit. — 3 days ago
