Default RIP Denis Mortet

I recieved an e-mail today from a wine buyer in France informing me
that brilliant Burgundian winemaker Denis Mortet died on Jan 31, 2006
of a self inflicted gunshot wound. I have been unable to confirm this
from any other source. Can anyone verify this tragic news?

Bill,



Translated from the blog of Hervé Bizeul, http://closdesfees.aquaray.com/dotclear/

"I can't find other words to express my emotions after the death
of Denis Mortet, who yesterday morning committed suicide in his
cellar."

I'm sorry to have to offer what appears a confirmation of this
sad news. The date of the document is 31 jan.

-E

See http://tinyurl.com/df77h for an article. It doesn't say anything that
has not been said here.

That's Wine Spectator online. Here is the local article in Burgundy:

The tragedy has been the talk of wine circles online for the last couple of
days.
