Nuits St Georges Les Cailles Robert Chevillon 2017 (750ML)
92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru has a mixture of red and black fruit on a nose of great clarity and focus; undergrowth scents filter in with aeration. The palate is extremely well balanced, exerting a gentle but insistent grip in the mouth. It feels a little chalky in texture. Shows great body and fine density; hints of orange peel come through toward the finish. Excellent." 01/19
92-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: [Sweet spot Outstanding] "As is virtually always the case, this is more aromatically elegant and spicier and in 2017 the nose of essence of raspberry, cherry, violet and soft herbal tea notes is also notably spicier. There is excellent richness and a highly beguiling vibrancy to the well-detailed and stony medium-bodied flavors that deliver a lovely combination of punch and finesse on the sneaky long finish. In sum, this beautifully well-balanced effort is Zen-like." 01/19
94+ Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The 2017 les Cailles from Bertrand Chevillon is a stunning wine in the making. The already quite beautiful bouquet delivers a superb and absolutely classic blend of cherries, plums, raw cocoa, a very complex base of minerality, gamebird, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and properly reserved out of the blocks, with a great core of sappy fruit, beautiful soil signature, ripe, seamless tannins and great length and grip on the focused, perfectly balanced and oh, so promising finish. All this great wine needs is time in the cellar to fully blossom!" 01/19
95 Points, Tim Atkin, Decnater: "Les Cailles is one of the Chevillon brothers' best parcels, planted in the 1930s on a stony site next to Les St-Georges. It's an impressive red showing stony minerality, some vanilla spice and more underlying tannin than you think at first. The acidity drives the finish of the wine. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030." 11/18
