Made with 30% stems and 70% new oak, it's very much a clay-derived style with plenty of texture, smooth tannins and layers of sweet, sensuous red berry fruit.

There is at once very good richness but also fine delineation to the solidly powerful middle weight flavors that possess good muscle on the youthfully austere, firm, serious and beautifully complex and persistent finale. Good stuff. collapse

Mortet's evolution in the direction of finesse coupled with the generous vintage has made for a supple, charming Clos de Vougeot that will offer uncharacteristically precocious drinking.-WK collapse

(91-93) The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru includes 30% whole bunches this year and matures in 75% new oak.

It has a very pure, almost candied bouquet with strawberry tart, raspberry preserve and pressed rose petal aromas that are neatly entwined with the new wood. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, orange pith and brown spices infusing the layers of red fruit. Maybe it just misses a little personality compared to some of Mortet’s other 2017s, but it is still very well balanced and stylish.- NM collapse
