91-93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The Tortochots’ parcel in Clos Vougeot is there oldest vines, as these are over seventy years of age. The wine is really a lovely example of this grand cru, with a sense of old vine sappiness in the core that carries the wood very well indeed. The bouquet offers up scents of red plums, black cherries, cocoa, a lovely base of soil, gamebirds, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and nicely balanced, with a good core, ripe tannins and a very long, soil-driven and nascently complex finish. This will be lovely with some bottle age. 2023-2060. (Mar/Apr 2015)"

This is a very small domaine at only 11ha (all of which is biodynamically farmed). Tortochot crafts a style and quality of wine that transcends their prices. If you are a fan of the purity found in old-school Burgundy, you will love these wines. With the help of noted consultant Sylvain Pataille (of Roumier fame), Tortochot has quietly been producing traditionally-styled wines that have become the subject of much swooning by critics. The hype train is gaining steam, the wines are for real, and they present extreme value in today's Burgundy landscape.
