2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Burgundy Arnaud Mortet Premier Cru RP-93 - 750 ML Bottle
93 PTS Robert Parker
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Perrière hails from a parcel that contains a mix of old and young vines, and this year Mortet declassified all the clusters with excessively large, fat berries derived from some of the younger vines. The result is a wine that surpasses the 2016 and 2017 renditions by some margin, so it was worth the effort. Bursting with scents of raspberries, plums, dark chocolate and soil tones, it''''s medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with refined tannins and a mineral finish.
