Age of the vines : 55 years old
This vineyard is located on a stony and marly soil allowing deep rooting. This soil produces delicate, straight and spicy wines.


The origins of the area back to the middle of the XIX th century, but Amedee Merme will seek to expand and structure the vineyard at the beginning of XX th century. Accompanied by his son Armand, they will seek to ensure the reputation of the estate in France and beyond by producing quality wines.

In the 1970s, Marie ‑ France Merme continued the work of her father Armand with her husband Henri Perrot-Minot. After Armand's death, Marie-France and Henri will take over the reins of the estate, which takes the name Perrot-Minot. Together, they carry on the tradition of quality and innovation that already prevailed in the two previous generations.

It was in 1993 that their son Christophe Perrot-Minot joined the estate and took over the management, after having worked as a wine broker for seven years. His previous experiences will have given him a deep and broad knowledge of the profession of winegrower.

Today, the estate represents 13 hectares of vines spread over the largest terroirs of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
