Winemaker Notes

This grand cru is located in a slightly sloping area. It is one of the most sunny and early sectors of the Gevrey-Chambertin finage, it very often reaches ideal maturity a few days before Chambertin.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 95
A ripe but airy nose of cool black cherry, spice and gentle earth nuances introduces round, delicious and highly refined medium-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate density. There is an attractive suppleness to the highly complex, balanced and gorgeously long finish. This is a Chapelle of understatement and harmony that delivers stunningly good depth.
Barrel Sample: 92-95
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from two parcels, 44 and 88-year old. This is a step-up in complexity over the Charmes-Chambertin with a broodier, more introspective but perhaps more compelling set of aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins, very fine acidity, touches of dark cherry, cold black tea and bergamot that lead to a spicy, almost understated finish in contrast to the nose. This will be a charmer.

Domaine Perrot-Minot, France
Domaine Perrot-Minot Winery Image
The origins of the Perrot-Minot estate go back to the middle of the 19th century, when the vines of the Sigaut (Chambolle-Musigny) and Morizot (Morey-Saint Denis) families were brought together in the heritage of Léonie Sigaut, wife and widow of Alexandre Morizot.

It wasn't until the 1960's that the estate would become known as Perrot-Minot. The family members running the estate at that time decided to adhere to the tradition of quality and innovation which had already prevailed with the two previous generations. Christophe Perrot-Minot became manager in 1993. His previous experience as a wine broker for seven years had brought him a deep and broad knowledge of the winegrower's trade. He also brought convictions about what constitutes a great wine and how to produce it. Convictions that he was to put into practice by adhering, like the three generations who preceded him, to that grand tradition of putting excellence and innovation at the very heart of work. Rethinking, modernizing the estate, and perfecting ever further the quality of the wines, while preparing the continuation of a story which now goes back nearly two centuries.

Cote d'Or, Burgundy

The origin of perhaps the world’s very finest Pinot Noir, Côte de Nuits is the northern half of the Côte d'Or and includes the famous wine villages of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux and Nuits-St-Georges.

Fine whites from Chardonnay are certainly found in the Côte de Nuits, but with much less frequency than top-performing reds made of Pinot noir. The little village of Nuits-St-Georges in its southern end gave the region its name: Côte de Nuits. The city of Dijon marks its northern border.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
