Grapelive Daily Pick
By Kerry Winslow
2007 Domaine Perrot-Minot Morey-St.-Denis “En la Rue de Vergy”, Red Burgundy, France.
Chistophe Perrot-Minot must have made some of the best wines in 2007 that he has ever made, and this from a tough vintage to boot, and I can say they all were stunning Red Burgundies from this Morey to his three top Grand Cru wines, all were deep and pure with real class. This wine, one of the less expensive of his line up really delivers the value and I was intrigued with the power and richness it showed, while still being elegant and true to its terroir. The nose is perfumed with flowers and red fruit, with a mouth full of cherry fruit and silky textures, while added layers of smoke, plum, raspberry and tea spices all give a nice frame to the pure Pinot character. If you are looking for a real Burgundy and want the best deal you can find, then this might be the wine of the vintage!
