Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Domaine Perrot Minot, Mazoyères Chambertin, Grand Cru, 2018
ABV:
13%
96-98/100
Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2018 Mazoyères-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a complex bouquet of pure brambly black fruit, crushed stone, undergrowth and subtle hints of cassis and violet that emerge with time. This is quite mercurial in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, wonderfully pitched acidity and a sense of harmony and precision that renders this perhaps the more graceful of the Mazoyères-Chambertins that Perrot-Minot has produced. Stunning.

Domaine Perrot Minot

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.
