NUITS SAINT GEORGES
2011 Vieilles Vignes Ultra 1er Cru La Richemone Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Village||Nuits Saint Georges|
This is reduced but not so much that the ripeness of the underlying fruit isn't reasonably apparent. There is a silky, even satiny mouth feel to the solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude structure-buffering dry extract on the impressively long and mineral-inflected finish. This delivers a striking combination of finesse and power. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 92-95 L&S (Jan 2013)
*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.
(from vines planted in 1902; 50% vendange entier): Bright medium ruby-red. Wild aromas of black raspberry, violet, smoke and musky roast coffee. Lush, sweet and dense, with intriguing stem elements adding interest to the flavors of black raspberry, minerals, licorice, flowers and peppery spices. This wine struck me as Gevrey-like on the nose and Vosne-like in the mouth. Terrific density of material here. Finishes with compelling sweetness and well-buffered tannins. 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
