Full, dark red. Redcurrant, iron and a hint of game on the slightly wild nose. More masculine and structured than the Charmes and considerably tighter today, with pepper and spice notes from some whole-cluster fermentation accenting the wine's dark berry flavors. Very tactile, minerally wine with a savory finish and little in the way of easy sweetness. This needs a good six or seven years of patience.

Iron, graphite violets, sage and rosemary are some of the many notes that emerge from the Mayozeres-Chambertin, one of Perrot-Minot's signature wines. The flavors are remarkably vivid and chiseled in the Mayozeres. With time in the glass, a host of bright floral, white pepper and clove notes develop, adding lift to the dark cherry/plum flavors. This is a magnificent, totally complete wine from Christophe Perrot-Minot.

The 2011 Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru includes 40% whole-cluster fruit. It offers an attractive, floral bouquet with violet petals infusing the dark cherry and boysenberry fruit, the mineralite eventually surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry. Nice structure here with pure citrus fruit and a crisp, dark cherry and boysenberry finish that is full of vigor - quite similar in fact to the Charmes-Chambertin in style. Drink 2017-2030.

Vinified with 50% whole clusters. The unusually expressive nose expresses itself with notes of earthy and quite deeply pitched scents of plum, cassis, wild berries, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. There is plenty of muscle to the supple, round and admirably pure large-bodied flavors that possess very firm but relatively fine-grained tannins on the impressively persistent and powerful finish. This doesn't quite have the present depth of the Charmes but it's just as long and the underlying material appears to be just as good and thus this should be outstanding in time.
