Description

Domaine Henri Perrot-Minot Gevrey Chambertin Justice des Seuvrees 2018

Domaine Henri Perrot-Minot Gevrey Chambertin Justice des Seuvrees combines power and finesse. Energetic and aromatic bouquet of cherries, orange zest, rose petals and sweet spices. The palate is dry and medium-bodied with a beautiful balance between vibrant acidity and mellow ripe tannins. Round flavours of dark cherries and blackcurrants with liquorice and sweet tobacco accents. Closes in a tight and tangy blood orange rind finish. A deep, elegant and refined cuvée.

100% Pinot Noir from select plots of 45-year-old vines. The Gevrey-Chambertin appellation covers 400 hectares and is in Gevrey, the largest production area in the Côte de Nuits. It has 28 Premiers Crus and several very good cuvées under the Village appellation. Justice des Seuvrees has a clayey limestone soil composition.
Manual harvest and first sorting in the vineyard, then second selection on a sorting table. Every grape is cut in half to check its health status and eliminate those that are not perfectly ripe. Cold maceration for about a week at 14°C. Natural fermentation with gentle pump-out and very little drilling. Once fermentation is complete, the wine decants for 48 hours then ages in barrels for 12–14 months.
Ageing potential: A wine designed for keeping. Drink 2019-2028.
