Community Tasting Notes (3) Median Score: 87 points

  • Nice Vosne fruit and spice on both the nose and palate with just a touch of backend medicinal astringency. Drying tannins but not too much of a distraction compared to some other 2004s. One of the few recent P-M wines I've had that speaks a bit of its terroir. Fading a bit compared to other bottles I've had the past year or two, but I guess the timing is right as this is the last bottle left in the cellar.

  • Nose is blackberry, animal fur, mint, and muted flowers. Palate is much of the same, but with air, this wine dried out a bit. The tannins are soft but again, a bit drying. A nice 2004 village wine, solid for its price point. Does not speak of Vosne -- a recurring theme of the P-M wines. But all in all, a nice drink.

  • I promised a few folks I would taste a recent Perrot-Minot wine to test their assurances that Perrot-Minot no longer makes grotesque over-oaked crap. They lied. First impression, with apologies to Robert Frost: the wood is toasty, dark and deep. But the problem here isn't just the wood, it's the heavy hand with everything. The fruit has a saline tinge to it which is OK if you like a prosciutto flavor in your Burgundy, but this one tastes rather more like Shiraz. Someone will probably advise me to try a higher-level Perrot-Minot, but this wine ought to be an overachiever. Though only village-level, Champs Perdrix borders the Gaudichots portion of La Tache, La Grande Rue, and Aux Reignots, up a steep slope from La Tache so it's a pretty cool and windy location. Not many producers make it; Bruno Clair is one of the others. Next time I feel like trying one I will buy Bruno Clair's.
