(from a 1.5 ha parcel situated directly across from Domaine Rousseau's parcel of Chambertin) A more elegant and quite high-toned nose of moderately complex red fruit aromas nuanced by tea, leather and a hint of game lead to sweet, intense and very fresh and precise full-bodied flavors with a good deal more complexity than the nose presently presents. The underlying tannins are quite fine and this finishes with punch and an almost tangy character.

($302) Good saturated red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of raspberry and mellow oak. Superripe but bright and impressively deep. Very generously flavored, spicy wine with suave tannins for the year and lovely persistence.
Perrot-Minot's vines are just across the Route des Grands Crus from Chambertin. This is charming, as the name suggests. Lush and mouthfilling, exuding morello cherry, blackberry and black currant aromas and flavors, this retains freshness and dense yet finely woven tannins. It lasts and lasts on the finish, with a sense of energy and sweet fruit. 75 cases imported.

Absolute gem for the price. Big cherries and bits of tobacco, very layered, excellent nose. Has huge potential but drinking early given hot 2003.
