Eclectic Wine Dinner (goosefoot - Chicago IL): Served alongside Perrot-Minot 2001 Mazoyeres-Chambertin. All black fruit with moderate spice, well integrated new oak. Hints of some animale and gamy background notes. I found the two wines very similar, no surprise given geographic proximity, but the Mazoyeres just showing slightly "more" of everything.
Dark rich earthy, black cherry, violets, underbrush, big aromas. Dense almost chewy quality, black fruits with a sleek quality. Dry spice with earthy appeal. Long dark finish. Youngish, showing quality and nice purity. Still nice upside likely to come.
Similar to the prior bottle but this one was a bit more aged, perhaps not stored as well or slow ox'ed? Light red with some bricking. Fairly muted nose at first, then some barnyard notes. Taste of cherry, blue fruit, smoked meat, wood with a decent finish.
Drank over 4 hours. After watching 'A Year in Burgundy' I decided to open a couple of my Perrot Minots. I hadn't had this wine in a few years. Surprisingly ripe and forward on the nose. Jammy red fruits, some minerals, wood and every now and then a hint of brett. Great concentration, full and ripe on the palate. Modern in style. Medium+ finish. A nice wine, and very young. Try again in 5 years or so.
