Description

Here too there is a subtle touch of wood that does not interfere with the clear expression of the intensely earthy and sauvage character of lightly spiced red berry and cassis aromas. The supple yet quite concentrated broad-shouldered flavors are supported by very firm tannins before culminating in a tension-filled, serious and notably austere finish that is intense to the point of being borderline painful. This should be very long-lived because despite being a very big wine, the balance is faultless. 92-95points, Burghound.

Classic Red Burgundies from one of the region's best appellations. "The Chevillons are in a class by themselves among the major Nuits-St-Georges landholders" - Robert Parker
