92 points Vinous

Slightly paler than the Mazoyères. Less forthcoming but finer aromas of raspberry, strawberry, truffle and coffee. Sweet, silky and creamy; intense, juicy red fruit flavors and mineral cut are rather Chambolle-like, especially compared to the Mazoyères. A wine of lovely finesse. More flatteur than the Mazoyères. (5/1998)

The 1995 Charmes-Chambertin from Domaine Perrot-Minot is really a very pretty example of the vintage and has aged into quite an elegant wine at age twenty-one. The complex and nicely red fruity nose offers up scents of cherries, raspberries, cloves, mustard seed, forest floor and a generous touch of spicy oak notes that are redolent today of sandalwood. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and nicely transparent, with good, but not great depth at the core, lovely soil signature, moderate tannins and fine shape and bounce on the long and complex finish. The tannins here are really beautifully buried in the remaining fruit and this is one of the most beautifully balanced 1995s for drinking today. It does not have quite the same mid-palate fruit amplitude as the very best examples from the vintage, but the wine is poised, complex and nicely focused and is a very enjoyable glass of Charmes at its apogee. Impressive juice. (Drink between 2016-2035). (1/2016)
