On the attack this has more edge to it, more pep than the Riotte. A much brighter expression and more silky too. Very nice intensity. Some plum-skin, cranberry note then some darker, ripe cherry-flesh. This really does have a stonkingly pretty middle, you want to cherish the memory. Lots of intensity; juicy black fruits are sweet and yet still pure - and spot-on ripeness. So well lifted by great acidity too, this is simply a joy already. There is just the buzz of acidity circling too. Drinking range: 2021 - 2028 L&S (Nov 2018)

A silky, expressive version, boasting floral, cherry, raspberry, sandalwood and spice aromas and flavors. The sapidity extends to the lingering aftertaste. Shows fine intensity, harmony and complexity. Best from 2022 through 2045. Drinking range: 2022 - 2045 Rating: 95 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator(Feb 2020)

The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d’Orveau "Cuvée Ultra" has an intense bouquet of red cherries, cranberry and orange peel aromas that unfold nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a supple, raspberry preserve and cranberry-driven finish that feels elegant and composed. Very fine. Drinking range: 2021 - 2032 Rating: 92 Neal Martin, 2020)

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
