Didn't have time to decant but this wine could've used it. Beautiful clarity in the glass with dried cherry and plum fruit along with a earthy core. Finish was a little short which kept the score down. Recommended.
From memory. Tight and somewhat unyielding initially. Later in the day, showing more complexity and intensity on the nose. Dominated by violets and red fruit, with some black fruit, herbal notes and minerality. Intense, concentrated (but not overly so) on the palate with tight fine tannin structure and bright acid. Long finish. Needs time or a long decant.

- Garagiste ****************** Perrot-Minot
It’s no secret I'm a staunch supporter of 2007 red Burgundy – the high acid/low-fruit style of the vintage is a showcase for terroir and the minerality in the 2007s is the most transparent since 2001 (another terrific year). I'm sure many of you are scratching your heads right now (“what about 2002, 2005 and the upcoming 2009s?”) but the fact remains – Burgundy’s medium-weight vintages often produce the biggest wow – certainly from a delicacy and expression standpoint.
When it comes down to it, what sets Burgundy apart from every other wine growing region in the world is the elusive combination of a low-alcohol, filigreed framework aligned with a pinpoint (often feminine and esoteric) display of a specific parcel of vines.
2007 has that in spades.
As far as top 2007s are concerned, Christophe Perrot-Minot produces a much sought after group of shockingly expensive (and rare) examples that now rival any of the top-tier addresses in the Cote de Nuits. While these are not for the casual observer, they should prove to be a time-capsule of magic with another 10-15 years in the bottle:
2007 Domaine Perrot-Minot Chambertin Clos de Beze - (compare at $375-500+ in the US) (175 cases produced)
2007 Domaine Perrot-Minot Chapelle-Chambertin - (compare at $375-425+ in the US) (100 cases produced)
