Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Domaine Perrot Minot, Chapelle Chambertin, Vieilles Vignes, Grand Cru, 2017

Spicy dark fruit, full and muscular but with some gloss and silk to the tannins. The polar opposite of Perrot Minot’s Charmes-Chambertin - richer and more broad-shouldered. Solid, and sturdy deep dark berry flavours with earthier notes of forest floor. A powerhouse. From a fine parcel of 90 year-old vines that produces tiny “millerande” berries year in year out.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2017 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru is much more reserved on the nose compared to the Charmes-Chambertin, the fruit a little darker. There is something of a crushed-pebble, almost beach-like scent, a distant tang of cockle sheds that surfaces with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and a little more depth and grip than the Charmes-Chambertin, even if it does not quite display the same sensuality and flesh on the finish. Good potential.

Domaine Perrot Minot

After practising the profession of wine broker for seven years, Christophe Perrot-Minot took over his parent’s estate in 1993. As well as providing renewed vigour and a perfectionist’s approach to the winemaking, Christophe also succeeded in expanding the Domaine substantially by buying out the famous Pernin-Rossin estate in Vosne-Romanée, starting with the 2000 vintage. The viticulture is respectful to nature and terroir - no chemical fertiliser or herbicides are used. Low yields and Christophe’s eye for detail are fundamental to the great quality of the wines, in addition to the Domaine’s impressive army of old vines ranging from 40 to 100 years old. Everything is hand-picked, vine leaves and canopies are thinned during the season and sorting / grapes selections are rigorous. The grapes are , for the most part, de- stalked, though up to a third whole-bunches are kept depending on the vintage and the vineyard. After fermentation the wines are aged in a maximum of 30-40% new oak. The wines are incredibly ripe, refined and concentrated, yet despite their almost modern intensity and polish they allow the nuances and character of terroir to come through strongly. A stellar Domaine.
