Focused and fresh; red berry and earthy aromas quintessential to the vineyard with a beautifully silky texture and long, sweet finale.

Perrot-Minot Morey-Saint-Denis Rue de Vergy 2016

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).

Vintage:Spring rains offset the hot, dry summer, resulting in lush and ripe yet balanced reds.

Vineyard:

Morey-Denis is a commune in the Côtes-de-Nuits district of Burgandy, known for its excellent quality red wine. Neighbour to Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, the grapes are considered to strike the balance between the former’s power and the latter’s lightness.

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:

Ripe, vibrant and well-proportioned. The nose is quintessential to the vineyard: focused and fresh with soft, sweet fruits, red berries, cherry and damp earth scents. The palate is well-balanced, rich and pure with a vibrant depth of flavour. The texture is beautifully silky and a firm backbone of acidity keeps it structured as it develops. The finale is a good length; balanced and precise with a long, sweet aftertaste.

Serving suggestions:

Beautiful with duck, goose and game birds.

Grapes: Pinot Noir
