Grand Cru chambertin 2017
The 2017 Chambertin has a beautifully difined bouquet.

Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques 2017
This wine has a fragrant bouquet of pressed irises accompanying black cherry and bilberry fruit plus a little stonninntucked undernearth.The balanced palate offers well judget acidity and sappy black fruit tinged with citrus and orange peel and good grip toward the finish.this is a commendable Lavaux even if it is not top of the class.

Grand Cru Mazis Chambertin 2017:
It has a rather blackward and introverted bouquet offering boysenberry fruit and a touch of india ink.The palate is balanced with fine tanin and well judged acidity .It just missesa degree of complexity and minerality making the finish pleasant but not memorable or profond.

Gevrey 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2017:
This wine has a well defined bouquet of rose petal and soy aromas, more open and expressive than the Lavaux St Jacques.The palate is well balanced with sappy red fruit smooth texture and gentle gripp toward the finish which lacks some depth and persistence.As such I have a preference for the Lavaux this year.

Morey st denis 1er Cru Aux charmes 2017:
It has a perfumed , floral bouquet, a mixture of black and blue fruit and a splash of iodine.The palate is well balanced with supple tannins smoth but not complex, its fleshiness rendering it more chambolle in style than Morey st denis,It just need more backbone on the finish.

Morey St Denis 2017:
This wine offers simple red berries on the nose along with a slight metallic tincture that will hopefully diminish with time.The well balanced palate oppens quite freshy featuring sweet red berries and canded orange peel.Little and precise with a touch of white pepper toward the finish.Enjoy over the next six to eight years.

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru


Domaine Tortochot 2017 Morey Saint Denis

Bottled. Lightish cherry red. Seductively inviting combination of red fruits and a hint of smoky reduction giving a more savoury character. Lightly peppery and lifted. Gorgeously open and scented on the palate, a real beauty of pure fruit and village typicality. Succulent and sustained. (JH)

Drink 2020-2025.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Aux Charmes 1er Cru Morey Saint Denis

Bottled. Mid to light crimson. A little more stemmy on the nose than the village wine but in a good way, adding another layer. A little more complex than the village wine and a little longer. Already delicious with its combination of red fruit, hint of floral scent on the palate, and super-fine tannins. True to type. (JH)

Drink 2020-2027.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Lavaux Saint Jacques 1er Cru Gevrey-Chambertin

Mid to light crimson. Intense, rich and pure red fruit on the nose. Deep and polished with smooth but compact tannins. Perfect harmony and lovely freshness on the long finish. A beauty. (JH)

Drink 2022-2032.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Champeaux 1er Cru Gevrey-Chambertin

Light crimson. Seductive ripe, red cherries on the nose. Intense and sour-fresh on the palate. Mouth-watering and so fresh on the palate yet has real depth of fruit to fill out the firm, rounded tannins. (JH)

Drink 2023-2032.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin

Lightish crimson. Sweet with red fruit and a hint of vanilla sweetness, the sweetness balanced by a more savoury spice. A little more obviously oaky on the palate at this stage but there's a fine floral note too and refined tannin structure. More savoury finish. Already complex. (JH)

Drink 2023-2035.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Grand Cru Chambertin
Lovely fragrance of sweet, tangy pure red fruit and the freshness of stems in moderation. Chewy, intense and fresh on the palate, a great balance in an embryonic wine with great promise. (JH)

Drink 2023-2035.

Domaine Tortochot 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

Sappy spice with lovely ripe red fruit and plenty of firm tannin but not much complexity. Moderate density of fruit should evolve in a few years, but I wouldn’t expect earth-moving revelations. (RH). Score 17+/20.
