80 year old vines. Initially real sweetness here, but this is dense, intense, closely-packed cassis, structured and forceful and unbelievably long. Christophe says this needs another three months élevage and it will not be bottled until three months after the Charmes.

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Full ruby. Pristine, primary aromas of cassis, crushed rock, licorice, bitter chocolate and violet. Dense, juicy and intense, with fruity, peppery acidity energizing the seamless but very unevolved middle palate. The extremely long, brisk finish leaves the taste buds vibrating.
93 - 96

A cool, complex and refined nose juxtaposes notes of plum, dark berry fruit, earth and underbrush before sliding gracefully into intensely mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess ripe tannins and outstanding length. This is a wonderfully and almost painfully intense wine where the natural minerality of En Gémeaux is very much front and center in terms of defining its character. In short, this is a balanced and very impressive effort that should also require 12 to 15 years of cellar time to realize all of its remarkable potential. Drink 2022+

Christophe Perrot-Minot is now the fourth generation of his family producing wine on the estate after his great grandfather Amédée Merme devoted himself to the management and production of wine over 130 years ago. The estate has gone from strength to strength – always keeping the highest standards. Integrated viticulture has been practiced for many years now which has been adapted especially for the terroir. No herbicide or chemical fertilizer is used, instead, Christophe prefers to “stand back and listen to this terroir, only intervening when necessary or when the weather requires it, never systematically.” Visit Website
