The Domaine started with Charles Mortet in 1956 when he purchased one hectare of vines. In 1992 his son, Denis took over. Denis Mortet rapidly became known among Burgundy wine lovers as he produced a series of very good vintages in the 90s, he is still perceived as one of the most emblematic figures in Gevrey-Chambertin. When Denis Mortet passed away in 2006, his son, Arnaud took over the estate. Today, Arnaud works together with his mom, Laurence, and his sister, Clémence.

In 1992, the estate consisted of 4.5 hectares in the municipalities of Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny and Vougeot. A year later, Denis and Laurence took over a 4-hectare estate adding plots of 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques, village plots located in En Motrot, Au Vellé, and En Champs, and a plot in Marsannay to their holdings. In 1999 the couple was able to acquire a plot of Chambertin Grand Cru. Today the Domaine counts 16 hectares, including holdings in two more Grand Cru: Bonnes-Mares and Mazis-Chambertin.

Arnaud follows his father’s steps with the same obsession for excellence. The wines are now very true to their origins, but have become more elegant and refined than those of Denis has been in the past.
