Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Chaignots Premier Cru 2017
Complex, intensely aromatic richness to the nose. Fruity nuances evolve towards soft floral scents. With ageing, balsamic, venison, musk and licorice notes complete a fine, subtle, and distinguished aromatic range.
The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots is superb, bursting with expressive aromas of cherries, violets, bergamot and grilled squab. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple with a layered core that entirely cloaks its fine structuring tannins in succulent fruit. This is an elegant, open-knit Chaignots which will offer a broad drinking window. - 93pts Robert Parker
The proximity to the southern side of Vosne is in evidence as here the expressive nose of pure red and dark berry scents cut with warm earth is quite spicy. In the same fashion as the nose, there is a lovely texture to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence both fine depth and length. I like the balance and there is enough stuffing that this could be approached early but it should also have no trouble amply repay mid-term cellaring. - 92pts Burghound
