4.50 / 5.0750 ml@Chef’s Table · Fine & Rare Dinner Vol. 1 by Maksym Demchenko

This wine is predictably powerful, featuring a sophisticated and generous bouquet that intricately combines mulberry and blackberry with notes of cola, licorice, and potpourri. Its complexity and multi-layered nature are striking, and despite its almost full-bodied character, it manages to achieve an almost perfect balance, which lends the wine a certain delicacy and quaffability, making it both profound and accessible. The aftertaste is remarkably long, further enhancing the overall tasting experience. This wine is truly exciting.

Domaine Perrot-Minot

The estate's origins date back to the mid-nineteenth century, but significant expansion and organization occurred in the early 20th century under Amédée Merme and his son Armand. The focus was on enhancing the estate's reputation through quality wine production.

In the 1970s, Marie-France Merme and Henri Perrot-Minot took over, continuing the tradition of quality and innovation. Their son, Christophe Perrot-Minot, joined as manager in 1993 after gaining extensive experience as a wine trader.

Today, the estate spans 13 hectares across prestigious terroirs in Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny, Vosne Romanée, and Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Christophe Perrot-Minot emphasizes biodiversity, using organic farming practices and reducing conventional product use. Systematic ploughing and earthing up of vines in winter are key practices. The estate employs short guyot pruning to limit grape production and ensure optimal ripening. Leaf thinning and green harvesting are adjusted annually to optimize fruit ripening. The harvest is entirely handpicked with a dual sorting process, both in the vineyard and at the sorting table. Grapes are halved for quality checks, with a focus on selecting only the healthiest and most ripe.
