2014 Vieilles Vignes Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Nice contrast to the Gevrey, this is a lovely juicy lifted style with classic Chambolle floral fruit. Quite relaxed, very pretty. This is 40% from Combe d'Orveau (premier cru), and 60% old vines from other plots. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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
This is all about the silky texture, setting the stage for cherry, strawberry and floral notes. Everything is in harmony, finishing with grace and subtlety. Drink now through 2028. Drinking range: 2017 - 2028 Rating: 92-92 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (May 2017)
(the same blend of elements as the 2015 version): Bright, dark red. Cool scents of dark cherry, licorice and stone. Silky and nicely concentrated but showing little easy sweetness to its youthfully medicinal flavors of cherry and menthol. As there's less mid-palate flesh here than in the '15 version, the tannins come across as a bit tight today but the classically dry finish is tactile and persistent. Christophe Perrot-Minot says this wine is closed in the early going owing to its sizable Combe d'Orveau component.

This has easygoing charm with coffee notes and toasted oak. It improves in the glass and has volume and a supple, refined texture. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024 Rating: 88 Decanter Magazine (Oct 2016)

40% premier cru plus 100-year-old-vine village wine. Bright light cherry red. A future here for the very tight tannins. Needs time. Fine and fresh. Drinking range: 2018 - 2027 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
(from 90 to 100 year old vines in Les Bussières with an additional ~30% from the 1er portion of La Combe d’Orveau). This is also pure, elegant and airy with its perfumed array of rose petal, sandalwood, anise and essence of red pinot fruit. There is an ultra-fine mouth feel and plenty of minerality present on the well-delineated flavors that possess fine concentration before culminating in a clean, polished and beautifully well-balanced finale. The presence of so much 1er juice is evident as this is a classic Chambolle of lace and grace. Recommended. Drinking range: - 2021 Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2016)
