Domaine Perrot-Minot Morey-St-Denis La Rue de Vergy 2013
The La Rue de Vergy vineyard sits directly above the Grand Cru Clos de Tart at the upper part of the hill in Morey-St-Denis. To the North the vineyard abuts Clos de Lambrays while to the south it is adjacent to Bonnes-Mares. Perrot-Minot's vines are located in the lower portion of the vineyard just across the ancient stone wall from Clos de Tart. The soil is very shallow and the vines are rooted in the limestone.
The origins of the Perrot-Minot estate go back to the middle of the 19th century, when the vines of the Sigaut (Chambolle-Musigny) and Morizot (Morey-Saint Denis) families were brought together in the heritage of Léonie Sigaut, wife and widow of Alexandre Morizot. It wasn't until the 1960's that the estate would become known as Perrot-Minot. The family members running the estate at that time decided to adhere to the tradition of quality and innovation which had already prevailed with the two previous generations. Christophe Perrot-Minot became manager in 1993.
