Review:

Flint, dark stone and tar notions flash momentarily at the first sniff of this wine, before red-cherry notions with an edge of dark chocolate take over. The palate expresses itself in juicy, rounded but still fresh fruit that is dense and smooth at its core, ripe and dusted with cocoa. Tannins are fine and seemingly elastic, smoothing the fruit and concentration.

Begude Bandol Rouge La Brulade 2015

Grilled meat (lamb, beef, boar), Mediterranean cuisine, spicy dishes.

Review:

This single-vineyard wine comes from a parcel that sits at 1,300 feet facing the Mediterranean sea. Its dark color, fabulous ripe fruits and perfumed character give it both richness and longevity. With 95% Mourvèdre, it has all the structure, dark tannins and spice of this grape that is at its best in this appellation. Drink this wine from 2023.

-Wine Enthusiast 95 Points Cellar Selection

The flagship 2015 Bandol Brulade is a powerful, serious Bandol that knocks it out of the park with its monster nose of dark fruits, cured meats, sandalwood, olive tapenade, and leathery characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and pure, with plenty of sexy fruit, it’s a terrific, serious Bandol that needs another 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep for 15-20."

Betz Family Besoleil 2015

Blending Detail:

  • 49 % Grenache
  • 20% Syrah
  • 16% Cinsault
  • 9% Mourvêdre
  • 6% Counoise

Grenache speaks loudly in the Bésoleil with notes of pomegranate, red raspberry, and strawberry leaf. The Counoise and Cinsualt bring bing cherry fruit and blueberry notes to the table, complicated by pepper and garrique. Mourvedre donates a wild meatiness to the blend, and a purple hue. Syrah rounds things out, adding texture, and flesh to the palate.

Review:

The first vintage where they’ve pushed the bottling back to give the cuvee 16-18 months in barrel, the 2015 Besoleil is a dead ringer for a high-quality Chateauneuf du Pape and offers perfumed notes of herbes de Provence, kirsch, licorice and sweet spice. It’s medium to full-bodied, textured and fruit-forward, with a hedonistic yet elegant profile that’s going to evolve gracefully.

The Domaine Thierry Mortet Estate
The Domaine was officially created in 1992, when Thierry’s father retired and his estate was divided between his two sons. Thierry studied enology and viticulture in Beaune before joining his parents  and brother and working at the Domaine
Thierry uses Burgundy barrels from Rousseau et Toutan, one third new each year. Annually, the estate bottles 1,100 cases. Thierry strives for fruit and finesse in his wines. Generally his top wines age well for 10-15 years.

The Domaine Thierry Mortet Vineyard
Thierry started in 1992 with a 4 hectare vineyard. It now measure 7 hectares (17.5 acres) and produces 85% red wine and 15% white wine. The vineyards spread over four villages: Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Couchey and Daix (west of Dijon).
Thierry Mortet uses classic winemaking techniques: pre-fermentation maceration for 3 or 4 days, total fermentation time of 2 weeks. The grapes are harvested by hand, are sorted and are 100% de-stemmed. The result is expressive, full-bodied, generous, pure wines.

Starting with the 2010 vintage, the Estate is now certified Organic !
