About the winery
Not content with just running the family estate (Domaine Denis Mortet), Arnaud Mortet created his own label. This exciting project was made possible by a retiring vigneron, who passed a four-hectare estate to him and his sister, Clemence. Their first vintage was 2016.
Arnaud carries out all the vineyard work with his team - to the same, exacting standards applied to the family vines - and then buys the fruit from the proprietor. Technically, this makes it a negociant business, but in reality he has 100% control of the vineyards and the winemaking. The circa four hectares are spread around Gevrey-Chambertin - the majority 50-year-old village vines, and then similarly old-vine plots across the Premiers Crus La Perriere and Lavaux St Jacques and Grands Crus Mazoyeres and Charmes.
