Medium red. Wild small red berries complicated by smoked meat and minerals on the captivating nose. Suave in texture and quite pliant, with sweet red fruit flavors complemented by underbrush and flowers. Much richer than the village wine. Here the tannins are sweet and the long finish offers subtle hints of spices and dried herbs. Today I'd rather own this than the 2005 version owing to its definition and verve but it's early days for the younger vintage. (ST)
This too is rather reserved and backward, revealing only glimpses of the dark, spicy and seductively pure Pinot fruit aromas that are less evolved and more primary than those of the Pruliers. The concentration and depth of material is a small but important step up, particularly on the mid-palate with its textured, sweet and mouth coating quality as well as the focused and wonderfully persistent finish. As usual, this is most impressive and should age very well yet drink well in the medium term. *Outstanding*
The 2004 Cailles is very, very fine, as is so often the case with this cru chez Chevillon. The bouquet is deep, pure and perfumed, offering up notes of black cherry, plum, striking notes of violet, gamebirds, excellent minerality and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and quite suave on the attack when first poured, but getting a bit recalcitrant with only a couple of minutes in the glass. The wine has a fine core of fruit, taught acids, and plenty of ripe tannin buried in the fruit of the wine. A beautifully balanced and proportioned 2004 that will age extremely well.
