Wine Critic Reviews for 2005 Henri Perrot Minot Charmes Chambertin VV

From 65-year-old vines in the highest portion of this appellation (bordering Rousseau’s Chambertin), Perrot-Minot’s 2005 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes offers pure, liqueur-like blackberry, black truffle and lily-like floral aromas, comes onto the palate with sumptuous depth and richness of fruit backed by beef marrow, creamy texture yet persistently fresh fruit, pungent brown spices, and amazing finishing intensity. This has what certain Australian wine makers would call “fruit weight,” yet without an impression of actual weight on the palate. While there is less refinement than in the Chapelle, there is formidable raw richness and intensity in this wine probably best left untouched for at least a decade.

Ruby-red. Black fruits and minerals on the nose. Taut and minerally in the mouth, offering a tight core of intense black fruits. Seems more massive and more crystalline than the Chapelle thanks to its superb inner-palate energy. This, too, is extremely backward, finishing with building tannins, a powerful impression of spine and great persistence. Perrot-Minot told me this parcel is adjacent to Rousseau's Chambertin and shares the same rocky soil.

(Domaine Perrot-Minot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Red) This is extremely ripe with blueberry and mocha aromas trimmed in a subtle touch of oak that precede the generous, sweet and full-bodied flavors that offer good intensity but not the depth and complexity of the best of the grands crus. Still, this is a dramatic and bold effort with terrific length and the complexity may develop with bottle age. (Drink starting 2013).

It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
