This ample and powerful Gevrey-Chambertin just needs a few years in the cellar to reveal its complexity. More info
A family domain for four generations, Domaine Perrot-Minot is now run by Christophe Perrot-Minot who is dedicated to organic growing and thorough vinifications to craft rich and concentrated wine for ageing.
The Pinot noir used to make it benefits from an oceanic climate and roots that draw their nutrients from soil rich in chalk and marl.
Made to be aged, this cuvée has a ruby red colour that will develop a garnet hue in time. Its nose reveals a bouquet rich in fruity notes of raspberry, redcurrant, cherry, and blackcurrant that will evolve in complexity. Toasted and spicy notes introduce a powerful and ample palate structured by firm tannins. These will soften over the years and invite pairings with characterful dishes like red meat, strong cheese, or a liver terrine.
The domaine's history began in the 19th century with the generation of Amédée Merme who attempted to expand the family property. In 1902, Armand Merme took over and made many innovations in the field of vinification. The name Perrot-Minot was associated to the domaine in 1963, when one of Armand Merme's four daughters married Henri Perrot-Minot. They took over the reins when Armand Merme passed away. Since 1993, their son Christophe Perrot-Minot (a wine broker for seven years) has run the domaine and still does today. His goal is to optimise the work and quality of the wines, thus carrying on the family tradition. The domaine has 13 hectares of vines distributed throughout the Côte de Nuits in villages, premier crus and grand crus which it completes by purchasing some grapes in Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze. These fine wines express the identity of each of these different terroirs. A magnificent name of the Côte de Nuits.
