Wine Critic Reviews for 2009 Henri Perrot Minot Chapelle Chambertin VV

The 2009 Chapelle-Chambertin is beautifully layered with sweet raspberries, flowers, spices and licorice. This is a decidedly rich, racy Chapelle, yet at the same time there is an element of nervous energy that balances some of the wine’s more overt tendencies. Today my sense is that the Chapelle is starting to close down. A refined long finish is the last clue as to what awaits once the wine settles down in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.

I was deeply impressed with Christophe Perrot-Minot’s 2009s. The wines are rich and powerful in the Perrot-Minot style, yet also shine with tons of energy. New oak was 20% for the village level wines, 30% for the premier crus and 30-50% for the grand crus, topping out at 50% for the Chambertin.

This red is lush and palate-coating, spreading its black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors like jam on toast. Its dense tannins are buried, but present, boosting the structure as the fruit kicks in on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2028. 96 cases made, 4 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 94 WS
(Domaine Perrot-Minot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Red) Mild reduction knocks down the nose though there is good freshness and energy to the suave yet beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with both a fine minerality and ample amounts of dry extract that impart an impression of finesse even though there is excellent power on the balanced and highly persistent finish. This should be terrific in time. (Drink starting 2024).

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.
