Perrot-Minot Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2013
An estate which became known at this time as Merme-Morizot. Amedee, a gentleman-farmer, as much at ease in the vineyard, in the winery and in the cellars, as he was in fashionable salons, then set about structuring and enlarging the vineyard. Christophe Perrot-Minot currently manages the estate, since 1993.
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 Leonie Sigaut, wife and widow of Alexandre Morizot. Their daughter, Esther Morizot, born just after the war of 1870 and the future heiress of the estate, married Amedee Merme a few years before the end of the 19th century. After a career in the army and then in the civil service, Amedee devoted himself to managing and developing the estate of Leonie, his mother-in-law.
