Tasting Notes

Chevillon's low-yielding 80-year-old vines have produced a terrific 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles that ranks among the range's high points, unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of ripe cherries, dried flowers, candied peel and peonies. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety with a deep, multidimensional core, beautiful purity of fruit and a long, expansive finish. Stylistically, Les Cailles is one of the most elegant wines in the range.

Score: 93 - 95

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. Sweet spot Outstanding

Score: 92 - 94

Riper on the nose and more similar to the Chaignots than the Pruliers. Almost exotic. Deep and chewy, but there’s also an unexpected floral note as it opens up.

Score: 16+

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.

Score: 92 - 94
