The 4th generation and winemaker of Domaine Tortochot in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chantal Michel Tortochot, is probably the most important figure in the rising world of women winemakers in Burgundy. In the 1990s, she decided to leave her financial career of 15 years to take over the Domaine. The Domaine manages a great parcel in Gevrey-Chambertin and produces excellent wines in Clos Vougeot, thanks to the hardwork from Chantal and her team.
We have inquired the Domaine again and are lucky to access a parcel which can be available in 2-3 weeks time. Tasted a few times and we are confident about the quality -

91 pts Allen Meadows “Outstanding” A more complex and more deeply pitched nose reflects notes of red and dark berries, earth and sauvage aromas that are trimmed in a touch of wood toast. The textured, intense and delicious medium-bodied flavors display focused power and a subtle minerality that carries over to the attractively textured, lingering, firm and well-balanced finish. This is worth considering.
92-94 pts Burgundy Cave We were being bold to start after 12 hours of bottle decanting and our patience did not go unrewarded. A multi-dimensional Gevrey-Chambertin with charming dark berries, sour cherries and toast. It also gives a bit of saltiness in the palate and has a long and enjoyable finish. Solid acidity, a joy to open now but also has great potential to age.
Subject to final confirmation. Arrive in 2-3 weeks.
