Domaine Perrot-Minot

Based in Morey-Saint-Denis, Christophe Perrot-Minot’s offering also includes Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges.

About

The estate, which covers 12.5 hectares, is an amalgam of two sources. The original holdings, inherited from Christophe’s maternal grandfather, were bolstered significantly by the acquisition of Domaine Pernin-Rossin in 2000. In addition, the grands crus of Chambertin, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze and Chapelle-Chambertin are made from purchased grapes, without the word ‘Domaine’ on the label.

According to Christophe, the Perrot-Minot style reached a crossroads in 2001, with the 2005 and 2006 vintages onwards being made very much in the current vein of elegance and finesse. The domaine is currently undergoing conversion to biodynamic viticulture, with the first fully biodynamic vintage expected to be 2018.

The domaine’s holdings stretch from Gevrey-Chambertin in the north, to Nuits-Saint-Georges in the south.

The 2017 Vintage

In 2017, a maximum of 20% new oak was used, the proportion falling year on year here. An average of 60% whole bunches were used. Some pumping over in the cellar, with just 3-5 punch-downs in total. Christophe Perrot-Minot describes his tannin extraction as an “infusion”.

When we asked Christophe whether he would liken the 2017 vintage to the 2014, he replied that 2017 is “more densely fruited and more perfumed, with an earlier harvest”. There is certainly a winning combination of fruit and freshness here, described by Adam Brett-Smith as particularly “juicy”.
