Really not giving away much on the nose. Tauter and firmer than the Chambertin, there's mineral force here and a lick of limestone on the tongue. Very closed, but slowly some spicy notes emerge - this is all in reserved power and linear drive for now. Drinking range: 2032 - 2050L&S (Oct 2020)

(also from purchased fruit). As is usually the case, this is spicier and a bit riper with its elegant, fresh and cool aromas of plum, black cherry, anise and soft sauvage whiffs. The mouthfeel is again super-sleek with superb delineation to the highly energetic big-bodied flavors that culminate in a mineral-driven, tautly muscular and bitter cherry pit-inflected finish that flashes hints of both youthful austerity and warmth. This should age effortlessly yet it’s not so backward that it couldn’t be approached after 10 years or so of bottle aging. Drinking range: 2034 - Rating: 93-96 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)
More open for inspection than the corresponding Chambertin, Perrot-Minot's 2019 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru delivers a rich bouquet of cherries, plums, sweet spices, espresso roast and rose petal. Full-bodied, layered and fleshy, it's ample and concentrated, with powdery tannins and lively acids. Rating: 94-96 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
Noble imperial purple, the finesse is here right from the start, with a sumptuous weight but this Clos de Bèze is never heavy and the tannins are scarcely present. This flows across the palate magically and leaves the most serenely gorgeous aftertaste. Tasted: November 2020 4/5 stars Rating: 96-98 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Jan 2021)
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

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.
BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ
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.
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.
