TASTING NOTES

"Sweetly ripe, lightly-cooked red raspberry, vanilla, and cocoa powder scent Chevillon's 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Chaignots displays overt ripeness and rounded richness on the palate, augmented by suggestions of resin, tar, and licorice. Here, however - very much in keeping with the character that this site exhibits time and again, here and other addresses - a sense of chalky, saline, iodine-like mineral inflections enters in, along with just enough fresh fruit and fruit skin edge to lend invigoration to its sustained finish. This is almost certainly going to pay greater dividends from cellaring for a few years than the corresponding Bousselots, and should be worth following for at least 6-8." David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #186

"Dark and rich, with blackberry, blueberry and pomegranate flavors wrapped in a coating of fine tannins. A bit square now, but with fruit and structure in the right proportions. Fine length. Best from 2011 through 2021." Wine Spectator
