"A blend of 50- to 70-year-old vines from various parcels around Brochon, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin "Mes Cinq Terroirs" has a taut, strict bouquet of pixelated red berry fruit laced with crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, superb acidity, a silky-smooth texture and a crystalline finish. Outstanding."

Review:
Arnaud Mortet's wonderfully reliable village Gevrey is made, as its name indicates, from five parcels close to the new cuverie in the upper part of the village. Always more than the sum of its parts, it's an eminently affordable way to experience the talents of this remarkable young winemaker. Tangy, sweet and refreshing, with raspberry, red cherry and aniseed notes and beautifully applied 30% new wood.

This is now a 30,000 bottle cuvée coming from 5 plots on the Brochon side of the appellation with vines averaging 50 to 60 years old. Impressive dense purple, this has a magical suavity of dark dense fruit with elegance and balance, really classy. I was going to say that Mes Cinq Terroirs was a textbook Gevrey but it is better than that.
