Christophe Perrot-Minot, a former courtier (a broker who serves as middleman between growers and negociants), now succeeds his parents as grower/winemaker at this family domaine established in 1963. With 20 acres under vines, Domaine Perrot-Minot makes 18 estate-grown wines including nine premier cru and two grand cru bottlings. Thirteen of the domaine's bottlings carry the descriptor "Vieilles Vignes" as they are made from vines that are at least 45 years old! As a firm believer in noninterventionist winemaking, Christophe uses no chemical fertilizers, employs a green harvest to bear only six to seven bunches per vine, and both harvests and sorts by hand. Each wine receives 30%-60% new oak (depending on its cru status), ages for 14-18 months and is bottled without fining or filtration.
