by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $249.94 (reg. $365.94)
Domain Perrot-Minot has achieved a cult-like following and has been referred to as "one of the most exciting domaines in Burgundy," per the Wine Advocate. Today we have their exceptional 2009 Charmes Chambertin for easily the best price around.
Christophe Perrot-Minot sources today's wine from a 1.5-hectare parcel situated directly across from Domaine Rousseau's parcel of Chambertin. Talk about some prime real estate! And it's not just location, either - Perrot-Minot is finding themselves on parallel ground quality-wise with Burgundy's most hallowed producers. After tasting Christophe's wines for the first time in the mid-90's, Parker exuded: "Speaking of superstars, Christophe Perrot-Minot is a name that may become as famous as Lignier, Dugat, Lafon, Roumier, and the like."
The 2009 vintage has earned critical acclaim across the board, with the Cote de Nuits reds receiving 95-points overall from the Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Vinous. Conditions allowed for wines that "are radiant, generous and exceptionally beautiful," according to Antonio Galloni.
Burghound praises Perrot-Minot for crafting "burgundies that combine finesse with style and depth" and this producer is precisely the kind of ultra-artisan estate that has made top-end Burgundy some of the most in-demand wine in the world. Combine that demand with super scarce quantity (a mere 312 cases made) and you'll understand why we're thrilled to have locked a few cases of this outstanding 95-point Grand Cru for an unbeatable price. If you're a connoisseur of the best that Burgundy has to offer, you'll want to get some of this for your collection. Cheers!
