2012 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Bousselots"

SKU #1247977 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good bright, dark red. Deep aromas of black raspberry, minerals, smoke and flowers, along with notes of licorice and dark chocolate; ripe and sexy. A step up in density and finesse of texture from the Chaignots, offering good acid spine to its wild dark fruit flavors. Quite dry and uncompromising today, finishing bright and long, with serious tannins and a juicy character. A very good showing. (ST)  (1/2014)

90-92 points Vinous

 Darker tonalities of fruit emerge from the 2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots. Here the style is generous and ample, with layers of fruit that fill out the wine's broad shouldered frame nicely. Spice, menthol and pine notes appear later, adding further dimensions of complexity. The style is a bit burly and sauvage, but all the elements are nicely balanced just the same. (AG)  (1/2014)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is a gentle touch of wood spice to the very fresh, cool and pure nose that offers up notes of various red berries and a floral hint. There is good detail and a beguiling vibrancy to the saline and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess a firm and solidly persistent finish. If this can add a bit of depth during the course of its evolution it could merit the upper end of my projected range.  (1/2014)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Bousselots has a mature bouquet, plenty of sous-bois notes: black truffle and Ceps and a sprig of mint. The palate is well balanced and appears to be just beginning to open up: blackberry red currant, sous-bois, quite a firm structure with some austerity coming toward the finish. (NM)  (6/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Mid crimson. Tangy black-cherry aroma with light spice and vanilla sweetness but also a tiny bit stemmy, in an attractive way. Relatively light in the mouth but very moreish and fresh and full of life. Dry and firm in texture. (JH)  (1/2014)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Nuits Saint Georges

- A long, narrow appellation, and the southernmost commune of importance in the Côtes de Nuits. Nuits St. Georges tend to be sturdy, muscular wines, which are tannic in their youth. There are no Grands Cru in the town, but several Premier Cru vineyards. The wines from the north side of the village, towards Vosne-Romanée are distinctly different in character than those from the southern vineyards. The vineyards traditionally among the best are in the South, including Cailles, Vaucrains, St. Georges, and Argillières. These vineyards are on deep brown limestone. The northern vineyards, on the other side of the river Meuzin, have more in common with those of Vosne Romanée. The vineyards are composed of pebbles and limestone, and the wines have more of the finesse and elegance of Vosne, but with the structure of Nuits St. Georges.
