Nuits St Georges Les Saint Georges Robert Chevillon 2017 (750ML)
92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru takes the oyster shell leitmotif that runs through many of Chevillon's wines this year and ramps it up. This feels as if it was grown next to a muddy estuary. There is wonderful clarity and focus here. The masculine palate is battened down by the firm tannin, offering dense red fruit, hints of dark chocolate and orange peel and a dash of white pepper toward the finish." 01/19
92-95 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: [Sweet spot Outstanding] "This is also quite spicy with a pretty and broad-ranging combination of red cherry, plum and violet aromas that are cut with warm earth hints. The big-bodied flavors possess a bit more minerality as well as more size, weight and evident power before culminating in a racy yet seductive finish that is very clearly built to age. This tautly muscular effort manages to be serious yet refined." 01/19
96 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "Les St. Georges is often the most purely black fruity wine in the Chevillon lineup, but in 2017, it has caught the red fruity fever that has swept through the other wines here and is gorgeously loaded with aromatics from the red side of the spectrum. The stunning bouquet soars from the glass in a sophisticated blend of red plums, red and black cherries, raw cocoa, pigeon, a touch of nutskin, very, very complex minerality, peonies and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and youthfully reserved, with plenty of sap down at the core, great soil signature, fine-grained tannins, laser-like focus and a very, very long, complex and utterly seamless finish. Brilliant juice." 01/19
95 Points Tim Atkin, Decanter: "Often the most backward, as well as the most concentrated, of the Chevillons' premiers crus, this is also the oakiest right now. But rest assured that there's more than enough structure for the wine to cope. It's deep, rich and focussed, with stony minerality and spicy, plummy, red berry intensity. Drinking Window 2025 - 2032." 11/18
