Fairly deep red. Sweet fruity nose, full of charm, displaying ripe red fruits. Rich, suave attack, but then the tannins kick in on the mid-palate. This may lack finesse but it has abundant fruit and plenty of Nuits muscle without being too extracted. Good length.
The earlier completion of the malo for the villages this year at Domaine Chevillon has the wine absolutely singing at the time of my visit. The superb nose offers up scents of red and black cherries, cocoa, a touch of nutskin, a lovely base of soil and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and quite soil-driven in personality, with a lovely core, fine length and grip and a very refined, suavely-tannic finish. A lovely old vine cuvée. Drink between 2019-2045.
Once again reduction renders the nose impossible to assess but there is good freshness and verve to the solidly dense middle weight flavors that possess a relatively fine mouth feel that is enhanced by the finer-grained tannins. As the description suggests this is much less rustic than usual though not as fine as most of the following 1ers.
