Domaine Perrot-Minot Nuits-St-Georges 'La Richemone - Cuvée Ultra' Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru
A mix of black cherry, sandalwood, violet and sweet spice flavors is the hallmark of this perfumed and silky red. As seamless as a young Burgundy can be, with terrific harmony and an underlying mineral note on the super long finish. 96 points, (BS) Wine Spectator
"Planted 1902 at the northern end, next to Boudots, on exceptionally stony ground. Only tiny millerand grapes so Christophe does not punch down. The nose is extremely dense if not yet detailed. There is incredible density of fruit on the palate, in a heady style reminiscent of neighbouring Vosne-Romanée. This is made up entirely of red fruit, nothing black, but cherry raspberry, and ripe redcurrants. Superb balance, persistent and mineral. 94-96 points Jasper Morris MW
A densely fruited, ripe and exuberantly fresh nose offers up notes of cassis, plum, dark raspberry and a variety of spice nuances. The impressively concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess a plush yet reasonably defined mouthfeel before culminating in a driving, focused and very powerful finish that seems to go on and on. This is a big wine where the abundant dry extract presently largely hides the firm core of supporting tannins but make no mistake, this will need plenty of time to reach its apogee. At the same time, the sheer density of the sap will allow this to be enjoyed young if that's your preference. *Outstanding* 92-94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
