Why you'll love it?
From one of the most exciting Domaines in Burgundy, Perrot-Minot produces wines that combine finesse with style and depth. Perrot-Minot practices 100% de-stemming, 5-7 days cold soaking & only 30-50% new oak leading to elegant & seamless wines. 2015 Burgundy vintage has produced universally praised wines on par with the 2010 & 2005.
Vibrant, generous bouquet with ample red cherry, cassis, crushed violet and mineral scents. It is very pure, almost sorbet-like. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit laced with a pinch of white pepper and minerals. Like Christophe's other 2015s, it offers panache in spades, with a caressing finish that lingers long in the mouth, a residue of orange rind on the aftertaste. This is excellent.
