Domaine Perrot-Minot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2014
94 Points Wine Advocate
The 2014 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is much more backward and laconic than the 2014 Griotte-Chambertin at this early stage. It is less fruit-driven but shows more stony/mineral aromas. The palate is smooth on the entry, quite precise with tart red cherries, fresh strawberry and a hint of vanilla pod. It starts to fan out on the mid-palate and then it clams back up towards the finish, suggesting that it deserves 4-5 years in bottle. Overall, it is very well crafted, quite cerebral Charmes-Chambertin from Christophe Perrot-Minot.
