This, our first event in the 2017 The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Sympsoium, proved to be an emotional one, with a few tears shed by the end of the evening. Faced with a wine from an exalted vineyard – the grand cru Chambertin – and an exalted domaine – Denis Mortet – those of us who have the pleasure to enjoy these wines are reminded when we taste a vertical like this – 15 vintages spanning four decades – that we are also bringing to our wine glasses three generations of effort in the life of a family.
This evening we had the great pleasure and honour to hear from Mrs. Laurence Mortet who with her family has, and continues to make that effort. Chambertin represents the crown jewel in the Mortet collection of appellations, even today as the domaine has continued to expand.
