Gevrey-Chambertin Les Corvées 2015
Renowned Burgundy expert Allen Meadows admitted that he was “quite impressed with the Tortochot 2015s” and that this particular wine was “excellent”, noting: “I very much like the mouthfeel of the caressing yet intense medium-bodied flavours that possess both good concentration and excellent depth.” Reading between the lines of the critic, who is always understated in his praise, this is not a wine to be missed.
2015 was an extraordinarily good vintage for red Burgundy, with many wine critics saying they hadn’t seen anything like it in at least a decade. Tortochot’s Gevrey-Chambertin Les Corvées is plush and inviting with ripe red and blackberry fruit, plus a fine balance of wood and earth. Hailing from a plot smaller than a hectare, this wine is hard to come by even in vintages that weren’t of the quality of 2015. So don’t miss out on this one and pull the cork alongside game in season, tagine, beef bourguignon or coq au vin.
The certified organic Domaine Tortochot is an absolute gem. Established by Paul Tortochot in 1865, the winery is now run by Chantal Tortochot. She stopped selling their best wines to Joseph Drouhin in the 1990s, allowing them to really build a name for themselves. Their old school Burgundy has long been a favourite among aficionados, but they have managed to remain somewhat under-the-radar, keeping the prices reasonable. Allen Meadows notes that “It’s clear that quality is on the upswing here and this is a domaine worth following. Moreover, given the extremely reasonable prices the wines typically sell for, they are bargains, a descriptor one rarely hears uttered in the same breath with Côte de Nuits Grands Crus.”£7.8 per 100.00ml
