    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine Perrot Minot, Charmes Chambertin, Grand Cru, 2017

    Charmes-Chambertin with attitude. Gorgeous and very Burgundian. The typically delicate, perfumed, soft red berry fruit of Charmes- Chambertin boosted by a mineral grip and energy. Edgy notes of crushed rocks complement and add focus to the crystal clear, floral cherry and strawberry fruit. Long, refined and radiant. Breathtaking. 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. This gives a very refined wine.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a tight-lipped bouquet that is missing a little fruit intensity compared to the domaine’s other cuvées. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, taut and linear. The precise, slightly austere finish feels more like a Mazis-Chambertin and could do with a little more flesh.

    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.
