2015 Domaine Perrot-Minot Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru "La Riotte" (Previously $150)

SKU #1317150 94 points Wine Spectator

 A mix of wild berry, spice, tobacco and stone flavors, this red is taut and compact on the finish. Austere for now, yet packed with fruit, this ends with a chalky sensation. Best from 2022 through 2036. (BS)  (5/2018)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A notably more elegant nose blends notes of red currant and dark cherry with those of violet, spice and warm earth. Here too the medium-bodied flavors possess a beguiling texture before terminating in a complex and beautifully persistent finish. This somehow manages to be dense and serious yet elegant.  (1/2017)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte has a very attractive bouquet with joyful maraschino cherry, cassis and blueberry scents permeated by cold stone, almost flinty aromas. This is very well defined. The palate is crisp on the entry with fine tannin, layers of pure red and black fruit and well-judged acidity. It conveys the typicité of this premier cru with style and panache and as such, it constitutes one of Christophe Perrot-Minot's best offerings this year. This comes recommended. (NM)  (12/2016)

91-93 points Vinous

 Bright medium-dark red. More cherry than raspberry on the nose, with complicating notes of brown spices, menthol, crushed rock and white pepper. Silky but taut and energetic, with sappy saline minerality giving tension to the middle palate. The wine's nervy stony quality is nicely buffered by its subtly sweet red fruits. This pure, penetrating wine offers noteworthy finesse. (ST)  (1/2017)

Jancis Robinson

 Cask sample. Texture with a bit of dryness on the nose. Sweet start and then some real texture and substance on the palate. Sweet cherries to begin with. But a bit dry on the end. 16.5/20  (11/2016)

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
