2011 Vieilles Vignes Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Lush, yet vibrant. All silk and sweetness, held in check only just. Sexy and rich. Lovely length and depth of red black fruit. Cassis is there, nice and bright. A real burst of bright juicy flavour on the finish. L&S (Dec 2012)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A classic and typical Perrot-Minot wine, the 2011 Charmes-Chambertin is built on a serious core of huge, intense fruit. Dark blue/black fruit, sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and new leather notes abound in a rich, powerful Burgundy bursting at the seams with intensity. This is a decidedly structured 2011 that needs to be cellared. 2019-2031 Rating: 95 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Apr 2014)
Moderately saturated ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose offers black cherry, dried flowers, crushed rock, mocha and nutty oak. Tangy and alive from entry to finish, boasting terrific inner-mouth tension to the slightly saline flavors of dark berries, violet and spices. Finishes tight and savory, with terrific verve. This very high-pitched Charmes should evolve slowly and gain in depth with bottle age. Rating: 92-95 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Feb 2013)

The term Vieilles Vignes is no idle boast here: the vines are nearly 90 years old, and it shows in the power and stony structure of the wine. For all its weight and intensity, it has freshness to balance the rich bramble and blackberry fruit. 2017-28 Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Jan 2013)
Highest parcel of Charmes just on the other side of the road from Chambertin. Mid ruby. Low-key nose actually. Very assertive and solid. Lots of race and ambition. 2017-2030 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2013)
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
