Wine Critic Reviews for 2010 Henri Perrot Minot NSG La Richemone VV

The 2010 Nuits St. Georges La Richemone Ultra, from a vineyard planted in 1902, is super-finessed and classy. The fruit seems to hover on the palate. Dark cherries, plums, sweet spices and mint are some of the many notes that come together in the glass. The precise, understated finish is beautifully articulated. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RP
Medium red, a bit less saturated than the Combe d'Orveau Ultra. Brooding, highly complex aromas of black cherry, blackberry, tea leaf, game bird and leather. Dense and very intense, with terrific medicinal reserve to the opulent flavors of dark cherry, dark berries and menthol. Can't match the Combe d'Orveau for sheer perfume but this gripping wine shows outstanding finesse of texture for Nuits-Saint-Georges. Very long and very youthful on the back end.

Vinous Media | 94 VM
Notes of cherry, spice, licorice and earth mark this red. Chewy in texture, offering fine intensity and a fresh finish. The length should extend with a few years of aging. Best from 2016 through 2032. 50 cases made, 5 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 94 WS
Moderate reduction impairs an evaluation of the nose but there is plenty of verve to the silky and attractively fine flavors where once again the impression of finesse is abetted considerably by the ultra-fine tannins though there is a touch of Nuits muscle that shows up on the powerful and notably firm finish. This is also very impressive.

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.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
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.
