2011 Domaine Perrot-Minot Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $214.94 (reg. $259.94)
Domaine Perrot-Minot 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 250 cases made) and you'll understand why we're thrilled to have locked a few cases of this "classic" 95-point Grand Cru for a terrific sale price!
For Antonio Galloni, the best examples from Burgundy in 2011 “are striking, quintessentially transparent wines” and there is no doubt that Perrot Minot is one of those best examples. Burghound specifically calls attention to Perrot Minot’s efforts in the vintage: “If your taste runs to burgundies that combine finesse with style and depth, then the Perrot 2011s are well worth your attention as they definitely deliver higher quality than the vintage as a whole.”
The proof is in the bottle and Perrot-Minot made a wine worthy of its Grand Cru status. Like the best 2011s, this Charmes-Chambertin is also a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Grand Cru examples like this one with only mid-term cellaring. Cheers!
