LeDomduVin: Domaine Perrot-Minot Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru “La Richemone” Vignes Centenaires Cuvée Ultra 2018
I have said it before and will say it again: Perrot-Minot is one of my top favorite Domaines in Burgundy.
I just loooooove their wines. And, I also love the way they revamped the look of their bottles, labels, and packaging.
And this wine (opened for a private lunch today) definitely confirms it.
My god, what a gorgeous wine!!!
First, the package is a statement on its own: clean, clear, smart, and sophisticated.
Secondly, both the thick, solid bottle and the bold, modern, yet elegantly designed labels (front and back) also convey a refined and cultivated image.
Even the long and qualitative cork is synonymous with attention to detail, passion, and precision.
Yet, the best is in the bottle (as it always is) 😁👍🍷
The second I popped the cork up, dark fruits, spices, and smoky and earthy fragrances were already perfuming the room. The palate opened with a fresh juicy, fruity attack, then smoothly expanded in the mid-palate with layers of red and dark fruit flavors mingling with earthy, smoky, terroir-driven notes and very integrated oak nuances. Extremely well-balanced, precise, elegant, and refined, with great acidity, yet ample, round, and delivering generously with a comforting boldness and confidence. The finish is long, lingering, and seamless. Gorgeous! A stunning wine from beginning to end.
NB: Only 2531 bottles were produced, and I bought 7 of them. Make sure to source some for yourself asap. They won't last long.
Cheers! Santé! And...
KUNG HEI FAT CHOI 恭喜發財
Happy Chinese New Year! to all of you and your families.
Stay safe and take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
