The Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux 1996 from Dennis Mortet is still very undeveloped and tightly knit. The bouquet is bursting with gun powder and raspberries … with only a few signs of age. On the palate tight and edgy with a powerful midpalate of extracted fruit. Not showing much development and is in the current stage quite monolithic and is lacking charm and complexity. Not a bad wine … but will it ever mature and show the delicate complexity we are looking for in a Burgundy at this level? Just not my style of Burgundy.

I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
