2014 Cuvée Ultra 1er Cru Combe d'Orveau Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
4 barrels from 0.6 of a hectare. Another jump up in class. There's a completeness and harmony of all the elements - taut but rich fruit, energy and bounce and yet a sort of cool severe grace too. Fills all corners of the mouth. Lovely poise as it spreads wide across the palate, an impressive fan which still delivers great length. Drinking range: 2025 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*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.
An effusive style, bursting with sweet cherry, currant and strawberry flavors. Oak spice and mineral details add depth as this builds to a long, stony aftertaste. Shows good tension between the dry, chalky feel and the mouthwatering acidity. Drinking range: 2021 - 2038 Rating: 94 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (Mar 2017)
Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2016)
Next to Le Musigny. 80% whole bunch, but they also take off the stalk and pedicel by hand (Leroy technique) for all their top wines. Deep crimson. Nervy nose. Exciting and thrilling. Red fruits vibrato. Minerally and appetising. Edge of minerals. Drinking range: 2022 - 2040 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
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
