    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine Perrot Minot, Charmes Chambertin, Du Dessus, Grand Cru, Vieilles Vignes, 2020

    A more serious and stern Charmes than usual with quite some intensity to it. Nuanced, multi-layered ripe red berry and cherry fruits and a fresh, savoury minerality, ruddered by fine-cut tannins. This has a sprinter's toned strength and a ballerina's poise. Christophe Perrot-Minot has a stunning parcel of old vines in the prime haut part of Charmes, opposite Rousseau's Chambertin. There is much less clay here than further down the slope, which gives a very refined wine.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru just shows a little more of the whole bunch compared to say, the Griottes, though it lends an attractive peppery bass note to the red cherry and strawberry top notes. The oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, taut and fresh, gently building to a slightly creamy-texture, seductive finish. Lovely.

    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.
