We have tasted few '05 burg before, but this is our first Mazoyeres-Chambertin from Perrot Minot, and therefore we did not know what to expect. Solid core black fruit, dense, with some chewy tannins. We felt it might have exhibited a little too much minerality and saline. To a lot of wine drinkers this is a well-made burg; but may be our taste is not yet accustomed to juice produced in the world renowned region of Burgundy. Not scored NR
Wine While Eating Well in Burgundy; 4/26/2010-4/30/2010 (Cote d'Or): A far contrast to the same wine from the 2001 vintage, this was surprisingly approachable for a 2005. Sweet black fruit aromas with a kirsch note. Massive fruit flavors with so much density, minerality and sweet tannins so that it is harmonious already now with very interesting long-term potential.

(Perrot-Minot Christophe Mazoyères-Chambertin) Also a menacing nose - but clearly not showing all its potential depth. Concentrated and fully-packed in the mouth. Another clearly impressive, indeed stunning wine - it just didn’t speak to me like the Chambolle did…
