Domaine Tortochot, Wonderful Performer from Gevrey Chambertin, Direct from Domaine

February 26, 2017

Domaine Tortochot came in the context of the following remarks by Allen Meadows made - “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, Burghound Issue 33.

 

Among the Grand Crus, surprisingly Domaine Tortochot makes the best from their parcel of Clos de Vougeot, always being one of the top in the Grand Cru, they are the picks of the vintage for this grand cru in 2014/2015, and comes with a very reasonable price tag:

HKD895/Bt (In case of 6*75cl) 

92pts Allen Meadows 

A pungently earthy nose combines notes of wood toast, menthol, herbal tea, red currant and a hint of humus. There is fine volume and muscle to the sappy middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a mildly austere finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. This will also require a few years to better integrate what is presently somewhat invasive wood treatment

HKD895/Bt (In case of 6*75cl) 

18/20 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. Jan 2017, wwww.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2045

 

Apart from the Clos Vougeot, we tasted a 70-year-old vine from Tortochot - The Gevrey Chambertin “Champerrier” Vielles Vignes 2015, simply the best valued wine we tried during our recent trip to Burgundy, with an unbelievable price - 

 

Domaine Tortochot Gevrey Chambertin “Champerrier” Vielles Vignes 2015 

HKD 320/Bt (In case of 12*75cl) 

92 pts Burgundy Cave 

Comes from  a parcel of 70 years old vines . There are lots of fruit forward notes of dark fruits and cherries. Unexpected complexity and balance in this village wine. Typically a Primeur Cru class! The acidity is an remarkable element to distinct the wine to be a special one. Approachable now, the wine will improve in the next 5 years. 

 

Subject to final confirmation. Available in 6 weeks and direct from domaine.
