From 90 year old vines. There is more bite here - more crunch on the attack. Than the Charmes. All round this is more serious. Red berries and little black fruit hits too add juicy interest. Then there is the sensation of some white gravelly stones adding a satisfying mineral line. This has frame and structure - but is beautifully together with such bright and spicy fruit. Quite weighty and some incredible concentration that remains firm for now but goes on and on. Impressive. L&S (Nov 2019)

(from Chapelle proper). This is cooler and spicier with a riper yet more elegant array of dark currant, cassis, rose petal and plum scents. The suave, round and seductively textured lager-scaled flavors possess a sleek muscularity and good minerality while delivering outstanding depth and length on the velvety and sappy finish. While clearly built to age over the mid to even longer-term, it’s not so imposing as to be impossible to enjoy young. Drinking range: 2033 - Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, 2020)

The 2018 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a much bolder and more expressive nose compared to the Charmes-Chambertin, offering copious blackberry, raspberry and crushed chalk aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Harmonious right to the end, delivering more depth and substance than the Charmes-Chambertin. Excellent. Drinking range: 2023 - 2045 Rating: 93-95 Neal Martin, 2020)

Aromatic fruit is draped over an austere, uncompromising structure... fine-boned, pure and cistercian. Long and reserved finish. Drinking range: 2028 - 2038 Rating: 97 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 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
