|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
The highest part of Charmes, next to the Dugats and Rousseau. Surprises by having quite an authoritative nose, bold and defined. Touch on the mouth is pure Charmes, sleek and fresh and absolutely no edges. Great purity, it positively floats on the palate, with a mineral lift that surprises every year - mouth watering and linear, that purity continues long and long. Drinking range: 2030 - 2045 L&S (Oct 2020)

Riper and juicier than I was expecting, but I suppose that Charmes often has a flattering side to it, this is a slightly fuller-framed wine than usual and this reflects the nature of the vintage. The nose and finish bookend a fabulously glossy palate and this is a marvellous and rather mellow wine in every respect. Rating: 19+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jan 2021)
(from a 1.5 ha parcel in Charmes proper). Moderate reduction mostly overshadows the ripe and earthy dark berry fruit aromas. By contrast there is very good freshness, outstanding intensity and concentration to the big-bodied, powerful and serious flavors that deliver superb length on the emphatically structured finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This promising and built-to-age effort is a big but still relatively refined wine that is less youthfully austere than normal. Drinking range: 2034 - Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)
Another rather backward cuvée during my visit was the 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly muscular wine evocative of cherries, wild berries and potpourri. As with the Griotte, I'm hesitant to even offer a score, and look forward to revisiting the wine in bottle. Rating: 92-94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (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
