Farewell to Denis Mortet

Vigneron Denis Mortet of Gevrey-Chambertin decided to end his life last Monday morning by shooting himself with a rifle. He was only 51. Very sad, as well as shocking and puzzling considering that he had reached such a high level of success in recent years. His rich, powerful red Burgundies, the darling of many wine critics, command high prices and are some of the most sought-after, especially in the U.S.
