With a history that dates back to the 19th century, Domaine Perrot-Minot in Morey-Saint-Denis is one of the older wine establishmentsin Burgundy. Founded after the union of theSigaut and Morizot wines families, the domaine changed its name after the 1963 marriage of Marie-France Merme to Henri Perrot-Minot. In 1993, their son Christophe took over the domaine, expanding its holdings to include Domaine Pernin-Rossin in Vosne-Romanée. Perrot-Minot owns vineyards in numerous grand cru and premier cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits. Christophe is committed to a more vigorous sorting process, thus yielding a more refined, elegant product. He is also averse to using too much new oak, which has also elevated his portfolio. Through these initiatives, the domaine has become a top estate in the Côte de Nuits. Perrot-Minot makes its wines from seven grand cru sites, including Chambertin, Clos-de-Bèze and Clos de Vougeot, and multiple premier cru sites. It favors old vines, with some 100+ years old or more. For Perrot-Minot, tradition is balanced with just the right touch of innovation.
