    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine Perrot Minot, Morey St Denis, La Riotte, 1er Cru, 2014

    On the rockier more minerally side of Morey St Denis adding real drive to the muscle and brawn that is so typical of this appellation's wines. Extremely distinctive and characterful notes of cassis, cherry and bramble with a strong flint and mineral dimension. Multi-layered, powerful but very lively with it. Excellent Morey.

    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.
