Chambertin, Domaine Perrot-Minot 2016
The 2016 Chambertin Grand Cru was picked at the end of the first week in October, although there was nothing Christophe could do about losing half the crop to frost. It has a very perfumed, floral, pure bouquet with ebullient redcurrant, cranberry and pomegranate aromas suffused with mineral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, fine tannin. The is an understated Chambertin built around poise and tension, long but need deep like the 2015, although you can feel the mouth tingling with the mineralité 30 seconds after the wine has departed. Excellent. Drink Date 2020 - 2040
