Aromas of cherries, sweet soil tones, dark chocolate and wild berries introduce Chevillon's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine with a generous core that's framed by rich, powdery tannins. This is a muscular Nuits that contrasts with its supple, sappy 2017 counterpart. (WK)
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Villages has a charming, vivid bouquet of ebullient red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit that bursts from the glass. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy red fruit on the entry. Quite glossy and sweet in style, with tart cherries and blueberry on the playful, energetic finish. Probably one for earlier drinking than, say, the 2015 or 2016 Nuit Saint-Georges Villages. (NM)
A relatively high-toned nose features notes of primarily red berries that are trimmed in discreet nuances of warm earth and wood. The attractively vibrant medium-bodied flavors are understandably bigger, richer and firmer and particularly so on the saline-inflected and again slightly rustic finale.
The inherent power of the 2018 vintage chez Chevillon is readily apparent from the first wine in the lineup this year, as this is a big, deep and pure example of old vine Nuits AC. The bouquet is ripe and sappy, jumping from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, venison, chocolate, dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and ripely tannic, with a rock solid core of fruit, fine focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and chewy finish. This will be the first wine to come forward in the stables this year, but I would not touch a bottle until it has seen ten years flow swiftly by. 2028-2055+.
