Les Champeaux comes from 4 parcels of vines totaling around 0.5-hectares between 60 and 90 years that is worked by horse and sees 50% new wood (reduced from 80% in the past). It has a complex bouquet with maraschino, fresh strawberry, cold stone and orange rind that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, slightly chalky in texture with firm backbone. There is a hint of white pepper loitering at the sides of the mouth, the finish assertive and demonstrative, lingering long like a grand cru. This is a serious, compelling Gevrey-Chambertin from Arnaud Mortet.
