Charmes Chambertin Perrot-Minot 2014 (1.5L)
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...92-94 WA 12/15
This is cool and pure to the point of being almost timid with its restrained array of red currant, pomegranate, earthy and softly sauvage-inflected nose. There is fine intensity to the sleek and satin-textured flavors that are muscular yet dance across the palate on the saline and wonderfully refreshing finish. This is clearly built-to-age yet it's already inviting...92-94 BH 01/16
