This cask sample has a gentle whiff of reduction on the nose, which quickly passes and the delicate bouquet leads to a full palate. Loaded with juicy acidity that pumps through the nice, peppy red berries and good energetic middle of enticing richness. Strangely brilliant that balance of weight, silkiness and then the freshness. Clever stuff from Christophe, this almost sums up his 2017s that he says are unique with their high levels of freshness and yet ripeness. Drinking range: 2020 - 2029 L&S (Nov 2018)

Inviting from the first sniff, this red is expressive, featuring kirsch, raspberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors. Velvety and plush, with a vibrant streak of acidity keeping this focused and long. Best from 2021 through 2035 Drinking range: 2021 - 2035Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator(Mar 2020)

(from a .49 ha parcel). There is just enough reduction present to blur the nuance on the nose of spicy and floral-inflected dark cherry aromas. More interesting are the once again ultra-sleek, intense and beautifully precise medium weight flavors that are so mineral-driven that they’re like rolling small pebbles around in the mouth, all wrapped in a clean, youthfully austere and linear finish. This is presently very tightly wound and will need bottle age to soften the firm tannins and add flesh to the finish. In short, this is classy but in no mood to come out and play.

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru has a very attractive, expressive bouquet of quite precocious macerated red cherries, kirsch, orange sorbet and hints of crème de cassis, a little showy but irresistible. The silky-smooth palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, more understated than the aromatics, and the finish is very cohesive and charming. Maybe it would benefit from more length, but it feels very natural and refined at the moment. Drinking range: 2022 - 2040 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jan 2019)

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
