MOREY SAINT DENIS

2012 La Rue de Vergy Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot

EN PRIMEUR

Bright medium red. Inviting aromas of redcurrant, crushed rock and rose petal. Densely packed and not at all overly sweet, showing excellent spicy lift to its bright flavors of red berries and flowers. Finishes suave, serious and long. From a yield of around 20 hectoliters per hectare, and it shows in this wine's concentration. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 91+ Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Mar 2015)

* This is a pre-shipment/primeur offer. All orders are accepted under the TERMS of this offer which differ from the terms of the rest of the site.

Good bright, dark red. Aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and crushed stone. Fat and sweet, but with lovely mineral thrust and energy to the flavors of crushed raspberry and cranberry. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent length and lift. Rating: 90-92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Mar 2014)

Perrot-Minot's 2012 Morey-Saint-Denis La Rue de Vergy impresses for its pure mineral and graphite-inflected cut. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves, menthol and savory herbs are all layered into the vibrant, brilliant finish. 2016-2022 Rating: 88-90 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jan 2014)

A ripe and exceptionally fresh nose of black cherries, earth and a whiff of wet stone leads to very supple, round and refined middle weight flavors where the minerality reappears on the spicy, balanced and lingering finish. This is very pretty if not particularly deep, or at least not yet. 2017+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2014)

The 2012 Morey Saint Denis En La Rue de Vergy comes from the domaine’s 1.5-hectare parcel from 41-year old vines. It sees 20% new oak, the rest one and two years old. It has a very pure, alluring bouquet that is modern in style compared to say, Bruno Clair’s, yet still well defined and attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet candied entry. Soft in texture with a silky finish, I would just like more grip and backbone on the finish. Still, this is a well-made Morey. Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2014)

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

STORAGE OPTIONS:

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ

OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
