Lunch Tasting With Perrot-Minot

The Wineagency invited to a lunch tasting. Christophe Perrot-Minot was present and presented his wine in a way that showed his dedication and his objective to make the best wines possible.
2004 Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru
We were greated with a glass of this fine bubbly, from a magnum. It has spent 120 months sur lie. It shows a fine nose with notes of flint, white flowers, white currants and cap gun smoke. Very deep and refined. A great bottle of bubbly that shows a lot of youth still.
The taste is cool and structured with notes of white flowers, candied lemons and newly washed clothes. Very, very fine. A high, focused acidity. A lovely wine. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay.
93p   (tasted 2016/02)
Flight I
2013 Bourgogne Rouge
A light, balanced, fresh nose with notes of ripening raspberries, forest floor and spices. This is on a higher level than your ordinary Bourgogne Rouge.
The taste has a light body but with a fine mature lingonberry fruit and notes of liquorice and forest floor. Very gulpable. Cool and fine.
88p   (tasted 2016/02)

2013 Chambolle-Musigny
This shows a lovely perfumed nose with notes of red apples, gravel and flowers. A very good smoky note. This is good!
The nose is cool, elegant and pure with notes of raspberries, chocolate bisquits and undergrowth. Very, very good.
91p   (tasted 2016/02)

2013 Gevrey-Chambertin
This beauty has a young, deep, meaty nose with notes of dark wild strawberries, sun warm rocks, forest floor and liquorice. A gorgeous ripe fruit. Really fine.
The taste is tight and concentrated with lots of ripe red fruits and notes of crushed rocks, forest floor, chocolate wafers and Asian spices. The finish is very long and focused. Great wine.
93p   (tasted 2016/02)
2013 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts
The Les Beaux Monts shows a very young, structured nose with notes of ripening raspberries with some blueberries mixed in, crushed rocks and some dry balsamic vinegar. Lots of potential here, but very young and sturdy for the moment.
The taste is firm and steady with notes of sweet lingomberries, wild strawberries, road dust and fir. Very, very good. Long and structured. Wait at least 6+ years.
91p   (tasted 2016/02)

Flight II
2012 Charmes-Chambertin
Aaaaah, what a nose! Deep, seductive and intoxicating, with stunning notes of ripe strawberries, smoke, red tea and a hint of meat. Old style, hedonistic Pinot, like some stunning Burgundy´s from the 40´s, albeit very young.
The taste follows the nose with gorgeous sweet fruit, an amazing body and a length that is counted in minutes. This is a stunning bottle of wine. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Most definitely yes!
97p   (tasted 2016/02)

2010 Charmes-Chambertin
The 10 Charmes-Chambertin is almost as good as the 12, but it has a more restrained and a bit darker character, but I would love to drink this nectar any day of the week.
95p   (tasted 2016/02)

Flight III
2011 Nuits-Saint-Georges La Richemone V.V.
The youngest of the NSG has a spicy, cool nose with some fine red fruit but also a green streak that pops through from time to time. A fine earthy aroma. Good.
The taste is tight and seedy with notes of lingonberries, some blueberries, gravel and spices. The green note on the nose doesn´t come through in the taste. Very good.
87p   (tasted 2016/02)

2010 Nuits-Saint-Georges La Richemone V.V.
A sweeter, deeper and more open nose with cooked strawberries, smoke, moist forest floor and some leather. Very good and open for business.
The taste is big and forward with notes of ripe strawberries, some blueberries, road dust and chocolated wafers. A long, distinct finish. Very, very good.
90p   (tasted 2016/02)

2009 Nuits-Saint-Georges La Richemone V.V.
A deep, spicy, young nose with notes of cool raspberries, blueberries, earth and dark flowers. Very, very good. This feel youngest of the three and with the most stuffing for the future.
The taste is young, tight and focused with notes of sweet lingonberries, blueberries, bakelite and spices. A long, sturdy finish with a fine acidity and a taut body. Give this 6+ years.
92p   (tasted 2016/02)
