Perrot-Minot Gevrey-Chambertin 2016

A touch simpler than other Pinot-Minot cuvées but with a vibrant structure, silky textures and a bouquet of earth, crushed berries, sweet spices and undergrowth. A long finish lets the earth tones linger.

Producer notes:

130 years after his great-grandfather sought (with great success) to restructure and expand his vineyards, Christophe Perrot-Minot is upholding the tradition of quality and innovation that is synonymous with the name Domaine Perrot-Minot.

Christophe strives to produce wines that recreate the complexity of the terroir itself. His philosophy is to listen to the land and observe sustainable and organic practices, trimming the leaves to maximise the grapes’ exposure to the sun and thinning crops to improve flavours. No herbicides nor fertilisers are used in the vineyards, and y observing patterns in the wind, warmth and humidity of the climate, Christophe is able to intervene only when the weather requires it – not systematically.

The domaine is spread across Morey-Saint-Dennis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges and boasts a number of vielles vignes (old vines).

Winemaking:

The grapes on the Domaine Perrot-Minot are harvested by hand and initially sorted at the vine. Each grape is then cut in half and inspected at the sorting table, any flawed or unripe grapes are discarded before the fruits are softly dropped into the fermentation vat.

Rather than employing traditional filtering methods, Christophe has developed a ‘filter-by-gravity’ system wherein he leaves the wine to settle so that the sediment falls to the bottle of the tank, the wine is then gently vacuumed out leaving the sediment behind.

Tasting notes:

An elegant yet frank red with amazing depth and freshness. Silky textures on the palate with a juicy cherry flavour that is beautifully displayed against a dense mixture of tannins. Blackcurrant and dark berries, with accents of minerals and spice adding depth. The finish is long and tangy with lingering earth tones.

Serving suggestions:

A wine to hold or drink: Gevrey-Chambertin will age well but is relatively accessible young - the tannins are dense but quite fine.

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
