Perrot-Minot Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 2012
• Domaine: Perrot-Minot
• A.O.C.: Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
• Classification: Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru, Côte de Nuits, Côte-d'Or, Burgundy
"The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts comes from a 0.80-hectare parcel. It has a vivacious bouquet with lifted black cherry and creme de cassis scents, citrus peel and a stony element that is only revealed after rigorous aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety entry matched by well-judged acidity. This is very smooth and generous in the mouth with plenty of black cherry and fruitcake lining the finish. Well-crafted for sure, but it needs to express just a little more mineralite on the finish. Fine. " - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (12/29/2013, Issue 210), Rating: 90-92
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
