Very broad rich nose, the thicker cloth of Vosne, but with a very fine weave and cashmere tannins giving volume without astringency. Floral aromatics, lifted, juicy very slightly tannic finish - fruit is held so long in these tannins which seem to be packed with spicy juice. Drinking range: 2024 - 2034L&S (Feb 2029)

(from a .49 ha parcel on the Vosne side). A more deeply pitched, and more expressive, nose is comprised by wonderfully spicy notes of black cherry, plum liqueur and violet. The delicious, refined and intense flavors brim with minerality and the same beguiling tension that renders the balanced, lingering and youthfully austere finish wonderfully refreshing. This needs to add depth, but the extended aging horizon should allow that to gradually occur in time. Drinking range: 2031 - Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts is lively and fine-boned, delivering aromas of raspberries, plums, blood orange and spices. Medium-bodied, bright and perfumed, it's elegant and mineral, showing this site's ethereal side. Rating: 91-93 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
Huge dense purple. Dark fresh fruit with a beautifully spicy element, the nose keeps pulling me back for more. There are even some floral notes here, while the fruit is both fresh and dark at the same time. Middleweight on the palate, some redcurrant elements emerging towards the back, to help keep the tension - there is a lot going on here. Tasted: November 2020 4/5 stars Rating: 92-96 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Jan 2021)
Very rich and smoky with masses of energy and a sensation of the liquid in a fruit salad. With age it will presumably take on a bit more depth. Drinking range: 2028 - 2045 Rating: 17+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2020)
The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru has a clean, precise bouquet with bunches of crushed violet filtered through the black cherry and blueberry fruit. The palate is very elegant on the entry, velvety in texture with a precocious yet controlled finish of blood orange infused dark cherry and cassis fruit. This is very harmonious and will be dangerously seductive in its youth, but it clearly has the substance to last. Drinking range: 2024 - 2050 Rating: 93-95 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Dec 2020)
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

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.
