The wines of Domaine Denis Mortet are revered throughout the world and no doubt the mention of them brings a bit of sadness over the tragic death of Monsieur Mortet in 2006. Thankfully, his very ably talented son, Arnaud has followed in his father's footsteps and continues to craft very fine, refined, elegant wines. As Arnaud explains, "The Longeroies is a word that probably comes from old French meaning furrow. The parcel facing south lies in the middle of the hillside and is composed of heaps of scree resting on deep soils. This is the star climat of the AOC which will probably become a Premier Cru. Stylistically, the wines from this special place deliver sheer fruit that explodes on the palate with a tactile impression of creaminess left by tannins that are already well melted. This is a tasty wine that quickly opens up." And it also happens to be very well priced given the pedigree of the estate.
