TASTING NOTES

"The wood is somewhat more in evidence though again it's not so much as to really compete with the plum, black cherry, dark currant and pungent earth-suffused aromas. This also possesses genuinely excellent volume and power as the broad-shouldered flavors possess both fine richness and seriously good mid-palate density on the mineral-inflected and palate coating finish. This has just a bit more acidity than the Les Cailles and it adds to the sense of vibrancy." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 57

"The 2013 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru les Saint Georges has abundant fruit on the nose with black plum, wild strawberry and minerals, understated at first, but just a few swirls and the aromatics are in fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful tension and vitality. This is very pure, very effervescent, with a sense of energy toward the tender finish. This has class written all over it. Evidence for Grand Cru status? Why not. Bertrand Chevillon was “en forme” when I visited him at his domaine in the suburbs of Nuits Saint Georges. Unlike last year, when I was simply unable to locate his winery, this time I was punctual and received no reprimand. He enthused about his 2013 for good reason because he, together with his brother Denis, produced a clutch of great wines in this challenging vintage. Just like elsewhere, his old vines suffered more than the younger and in the worst affected parcels he lost around 40% of the crop due to poor flowering. He picked October 3-11 and matured his premier crus in around 30% new wood, due to be bottled in April 2015. I felt that these wines were nimble, bright and tensile. More linear than the 2012s last year, they appear to be born with plenty of energy and animation, each expressing their terroirs with style. Price have crept up in recent years, but overall they still represent decent value considering the quality and longevity." Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com #216

"Bright, dark red. Lovely class and lift to the aromas of dark raspberry, bitter cherry, flowers, minerals and crushed stone. Urgent red and purple fruit flavors show outstanding penetration and delineation yet come across as remarkably refined and smooth. A salty character adds another dimension to the very long, vibrant, backward finish. Delivers the outstanding density without weight that I associate more with grand crus. (But then the long process initiated by a number of owners of this vineyard to have Les Saint-Georges elevated to grand cru status has been underway for several years already.)"
