Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs is a blend of fruit hitherto bottled as the Vieilles Vignes and the les Echanges because Arnaud felt that the young vines had come of age and the fruit had reached the same level. Matured in 30% new oak and racked after malolactic at the end of August, it has a well-defined, precise and yet intense bouquet with pure red cherry and wild strawberry scents. There are tangible mineral notes that translate onto the palate defined by taut tannins and a silver thread of acidity. The finish is both poised and linear, completing what is a welcome return for one of Mortet's best cuvées.
