“It's clear that... this is a domaine worth following. Moreover, given the extremely reasonable prices the wines typically sell for, they are bargains.” - Allen Meadows on Domaine Tortochot, Burghound Issue 33 The 4th generation and winemaker of Domaine Tortochot in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chantal Michel Tortochot had a career in finance for 15 years before she decided to leave and take over the domaine in the 1990s, and is now probably the most important figure in the rising world of female winemakers in Burgundy. The domaine manages a very great parcel in Gevrey-Chambertin and produces excellent wines in Clos de Vougeot, thanks to the hard work by Chantal and her team. Though they remain applying traditional practices in the vineyard, Chantal has made various advancements in the cellar with new equipment, creating wines that are firm, well-balanced and reflect the terroirs very well.
With just 3 barrels produced, Tortochot’s Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is one of the best wines we love and keep buying among the range. Their 2015 was scored 94pts by Allen Meadows who commented, "the quality of the underlying material is the best in the range in 2015". If you look at how it compares against some of the top producers of the same, you will easily see why this is such a compelling buy -

94pts Allen Meadows
Very ripe yet still fresh aromas blend together notes of both red and dark currant with those of spice, earth and a hint of smoke. The reserved and ultra-primary flavors possess imposing size and weight while displaying superb persistence on the wonderfully complex finale. This marked robust effort is not as refined as the Chambertin, indeed the mouthfeel is borderline rustic, yet the quality of the underlying material is the best in the range in 2015.
18 out of 20 pts Jancis Robinson
Stunning smoke and flint aromas, dry and tannic on the palate, with a significant structure that will age a long time. Tingling acid, finely balanced fruit and smoke aromas.

17pts Jancis Robinson New, ‘more modern’ label she is introducing, even though her New York importer T Edwards prefers the old italic one. Deep ruby. Very attractively perfumed. Rather gentle fruit and then packaged up with quite a bit of tannin. Lively and beguiling for the future.
