A second grand cru from Gevrey tasted alongside the Charmes 1999 from the same producer. A remarkable contrast with the Charmes. Aromas of black cherries, ripeness, cassis, a touch of fig. Shavings of black truffle. This Mazoyères-Chambertin 1999 from Perrot-Minot is big and chewy, rich and deep, complete, pleasurable. Dominated by black fruits, fresh and ripe with a cylinder of berry fruits. The style is fairly glossy and rounded with a ripe black currant finish and good length. Outpunches the Charmes. Scores 25/30 for a Gevrey Grand Cru. Photo shows pinot grapes in the Gevrey vineyards on July 29th 2011.
