(from a 1.12 ha parcel of 75+ year old vines). An elegant and attractively complex nose combines notes of plum, anise, sandalwood, warm earth and various wild dark berries. There is first-rate density to the focused and unusually powerful flavors that deliver simply huge length on the impeccably well-balanced finale. As it virtually always is chez Chevillon, this is a very classy effort. If you can find it, buy it. 2027+
Bright ruby-red. Very ripe black fruit aromas are currently a bit less expressive and aromatic than those of the Pruliers. Then juicy, detailed and firm on the palate, offering excellent detail and energy to its ripe black fruit and chocolate flavors. Displays excellent concentration and texture in a distinctly dark style. Finishes with serious but very suave tannins that spread out subtly to dust the palate. Nuits-Saint-Georges with compelling depth and refinement. The crop level here was less than 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Chevillon, who noted that "there were a lot of berries but they never sized up."
