Nuits St Georges Les Chaignots Robert Chevillon 2016 (750ML)
93+ Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since fully 1.5 hectares of vines produced a mere four barrels of wine, it's no surprise that the 2016 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots is preternaturally concentrated, and tasted blind I mistook it for the domaine's Cailles. Unfurling in the glass with notes of rose petals, violets, orange rind and ripe cherries, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and strikingly intense, structured around rich, velvety tannins that caress the palate, and concluding with a long, beautifully lively finish. Readers who can find a few bottles shouldn't hesitate." 01/19
90-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright red-ruby. Pure, vibrant aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry are lifted by a whiff of violet. More discreet in the mouth than the Chaignots but with its imploded dark fruit flavors accented by high-pitched florality. Finishes pristine, firmly tannic and long, with a restrained sweetness and a sappy juicy quality." 1/18
90-92 Points, Allen Meadows' Burghound: "An airy, cool and admirably pure nose is composed by notes of the essence of red currant, spice and a touch of earth, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Once again there is terrific punch and detail to the restrained medium-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering finish that is shaped by a firm tannic spine. This is a relatively refined Nuits but it's a Nuits all the same, which is to say that it's less rustic than most of the wines in the range." 1/18
