2009 Vieilles Vignes Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
80 year old vines just under Clos de Bèze. Very dark - all black cherry and sweet fruit. Opulent. Some of the soft charm of the Charmes, some of the more rugged character of the Mazis. Griotte cherries. Supple but impressively powerful, and a structured, even tannic finish. L&S (Nov 2010)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The fruit on the nose is rich and ripe more black than red fruit in influence. The palate starts quite light but fruit sweetness gives flesh in the middle and enriches the finish. 2013-20 Rating: 91 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
The 2009 Chapelle-Chambertin is beautifully layered with sweet raspberries, flowers, spices and licorice. This is a decidedly rich, racy Chapelle, yet at the same time there is an element of nervous energy that balances some of the wine's more overt tendencies. Today my sense is that the Chapelle is starting to close down. A refined long finish is the last clue as to what awaits once the wine settles down in bottle. 2019-2034 Rating: 94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
Mild reduction knocks down the nose though there is good freshness and energy to the suave yet beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with both a fine minerality and ample amounts of dry extract that impart an impression of finesse even though there is excellent power on the balanced and highly persistent finish. This should be terrific in time. 2024+ Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2011)
Full ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of crushed stone, menthol, bitter chocolate and peony. Thick, dense and intense, with terrific sap and minerality energizing the seamless middle palate. Powerful, vibrant, slow-building back end features thoroughly buffered tannins that spread out to saturate the entire palate. Rating: 93-95 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2011)
Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
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
