2018 Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot


Lovely balance of ripeness here. Dark berries again. Darker feel to the fruit - all just really nicely ripe. Pitch-perfect. Concentrated and the grip is deliciously mouth-watering. Fine powdery feel - gorgeous with a restraining mineral dustiness. Dark and smouldering with a gob or too of sweetness. There is lots going on here, its deep and densely layered for now. It will be a great treat to revisit this in about 10 years time.L&S(Nov 2019)

Once again the nose is strikingly floral though with plenty of sauvage character suffusing the fresh mix of red and dark currant, earth and forest floor. The racy, intense and appealingly delineated larger-scaled flavors possess focused power on the balanced, clean and beautifully long finish. This is a big but harmonious effort that should age gracefully for many years. Drinking range: 2035 - Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, 2020)

Cask sample. Some mineral quality on the nose. Lots to chew on. Very embryonic and with everything in the right place. Racy and promising with real depth. Drinking range: 2030 - 2050 Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - 2020)

The 2018 Mazoyères-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a complex bouquet of pure brambly black fruit, crushed stone, undergrowth and subtle hints of cassis and violet that emerge with time. This is quite mercurial in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, wonderfully pitched acidity and a sense of harmony and precision that renders this perhaps the more graceful of the Mazoyères-Chambertins that Perrot-Minot has produced.

Dense layered, firm and darker than the Charmes. More reserve. Drinking range: 2028 - 2038 Rating: 97 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2019)

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

Please feel free to email us your Wishlist at any time. This list can include wines listed as available on the website, as well as those marked 'To Be Advised'. We will reply as soon as possible with confirmation of what we can offer.


Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.


OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
