Tasting Notes

  • AG

    Antonio Galloni, January 2014,
    Score: 94-96

    The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin is a wild, exciting wine. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2012 presents a beguiling array of orange peel, white pepper, game, iron and smoke aromas, all seamlessly integrated into a core of dark red and black hued fruit. There is so much going on in the glass, it's hard to know where to start. With time in the glass, the Charmes continues to flesh out in all directions, never failing to impress with its power and intensity. This is a distinctly brooding Charmes, and a wine that needs time in bottle to show at its best. Drink 2024-2044

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2015,
    Score: 94

    This is quite aromatically complex if markedly less elegant with its aromas of humus, pungent earth and sauvage nuances on the red currant and dark pinot fruit scents. There is very solid mid-palate concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that also possess a refined mouth feel before culminating in a strikingly persistent, balanced and equally complex finish. This is very firm and will need a minimum of 8 to 10 years of bottle age first. Drink 2025+

    Full deep red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, iron, white pepper, dried rose and white flowers. Intensely flavored and vibrant, showing outstanding inner-mouth energy to its flavors of red fruits, flowers and saline minerality. The long finish boasts superb floral lift. Christophe Perrot-Minot keeps this wine in a reduced state in barrel, noting that it has a tendency to open much faster than the Mazoyères-Chambertin. Drink 2025-2038

Producer

Domaine Perrot-Minot

Domaine Perrot-Minot has 20 acres under vine. A family run domaine, established in 1963 and now run by Christophe Perrot-Minot, it prouduces 18 wines including nine Premier Cru and two Grand cru bottlings. Most of the vines are of a good age (13 of the 18 bottlings are 45+yrs old "Vieilles Vignes".) As a firm believer in noninterventionist winemaking, Christophe uses no chemical fertilisers, employs a green harvest to bear only six to seven bunches per vine, and both harvests and sorts by hand. Each wine receives 30%-60% new oak (depending on its cru status), ages for 14-18 months and is bottled without fining or filtration.

Region

Charmes-Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin is one of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. On gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north, gravelly soil forces the vines to work hard. Relatively large for a Grand Cru appellation, it is hard to generalise about the wines. Often intensely perfumed and seductive, Charmes-Chambertin can be approachable earlier than its Grand Crus neighbours.
