2011 Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Sweeter, riper, denser and 'hairier' than the Charmes. There's rigid minerality, a kind of Giacometti frame. Spicy and long. L&S (Dec 2012)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Iron, graphite violets, sage and rosemary are some of the many notes that emerge from the Mayozères-Chambertin, one of Perrot-Minot's signature wines. The flavors are remarkably vivid and chiseled in the Mayozères. With time in the glass, a host of bright floral, white pepper and clove notes develop, adding lift to the dark cherry/plum flavors. This is a magnificent, totally complete wine from Christophe Perrot-Minot. 2021-2031 Rating: 95+ Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Apr 2014)
The unusually open nose expresses itself with notes of oak, earth and quite deeply pitched scents of plum, cassis, wild berries, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. There is plenty of muscle to the supple, round and admirably pure large-bodied flavors that possess very firm but relatively fine-grained tannins on the impressively persistent and powerful finish. This is a notably ripe wine in the context of the vintage and one that should also amply reward mid to longer-term cellaring. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2014)
(vinified with 50% whole clusters): Bright medium ruby. Wild aromas of blueberry, blackberry, gibier, animal fur, pepper and spices; an essence of Gevrey. Juicy, savory and tightly wound but not hard; tricky to taste after the creaminess of the Chapelle but pure and long, with totally ripe tannins and lingering notes of pepper, licorice and spice. Just a touch of stem bitterness on the back end. Very promising grand cru but this will need time in bottle. Rating: 92-94 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Feb 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
