Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot

France, Burgundy

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.” This is one of the star domaines of the whole of Burgundy.

One producer I have not been following long enough to know whether there has been a change of direction but who has impressed me with the purity of his wines (by which I do not mean weakness) is Perrot-Minot in Morey-St-Denis, Jancis Robinson OBE MW -  (Jan 2016)
