When it comes to iconic Burgundy producers, there are just a handful that not only make sought after bottles, but have the journey to complete the story. The story of Domaine Mortet follows three generations of established men, each with his own vision. Charles Mortet founded the domain in 1956 with just one hectare. When his son Denis took over, the domain had grown slowly to 4.5 hectares. Their focus was to grow over time, steadily taking on more vineyards. After the tragic death of Denis in 2006, young Arnaud brought forth a sense of energy and imagination. Incredibly, the changes that Arnaud has made have brought this Burgundy producer to a new status of quality due to his minimalist tendencies and organic forward practices.
The texture of the stunning 2018 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru is partially developed by Arnaud's labor-intensive technique of cutting out the main stem of the bunches used during the whole cluster fermentation. This parcel in Bonnes Mares is from the middle section of the Grand Cru closer to the Chambolle-Musigny side.
