2013 Vieilles Vignes Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
All the fruit from the normal 'Combe d'Orveau' fruit is in this. There's a tightness, but also an attractively vibrant precision. Floral with fine red fruit. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2014)
*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 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes offers a gorgeous interplay of rich Chambolle fruit along with brighter aromatic notes and tension that are often found in the northern sector of the village, all backed up by silky tannins that confer finesse. The 2013 is mostly fruit from Les Bussières, along with three barrels that would have been the straight Combe d'Orveau Chambolle.

100-year-old vines. Much more intense than the village Gevrey from this address. Lots of charm in the build. Fruit almost hides tannins. There is a future but you could almost enjoy this now! Very clean and fresh but not at all skinny. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
(includes three barrels from the Combe d'Orveau): Bright, dark red. Aromas of cherry, spices, rose petal and menthol are accented by a piquant suggestion of blood orange. Distinctly brambly aromas of berries, rose and menthol. At once lush and bright, with a firm tannic spine giving the wine structure and grip. A very serious village wine in the making.

The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes is the first year that Christophe elected to blend the fruit from La Combe d’Orveaux (so there is only the Cuvée Ultra henceforth). It has another perfumed, floral bouquet with crushed strawberry, Morello and smidgen of balsam entering the fray. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, a little more cohesion and substance than the Gevrey Village and finishing with commendable precision and reserve.

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
