1996 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Cailles"

SKU #1041595 91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This dark-ruby/black-colored wine has intensely ripe red and black fruit aromas that are followed by a palate-staining, full-bodied, and massively concentrated wine with enormous richness and depth. This powerful, harmonious, and extremely well-balanced and focused Nuits possesses layers of sweet, red and black fruits that dominate its flavor profile and admirably long finish. Its satiny tannins should have melted by 2003...This offering is fabulous! (PR) Inner quote mark (8/1998)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark (opened from personal storage). A fully mature and beautifully complex nose speaks of earth, spice and secondary fruit aromas though no sous bois and leads to rich, round and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess the same excellent depth as the nose. The palate impression is velvety and this is quite unlike the majority of '96s as the underlying acidity is completely harmonious and integrated. In sum, this is really lovely juice that is at its apogee now but should hold for years to come. Inner quote mark (9/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sensational. Bursting with complexity, it's like fireworks on the palate. Beautifully toasty, with smoke, tar, vanilla, plum, black cherry, and the texture is like velvet despite the massive tannin structure. Inner quote mark (6/1999)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red ruby. Tangy aromas of wild raspberry, fraise des bois, roast coffee and maple syrup. Sweet, lush and spherical; very suave and rich. Vibrant flavor of crunchy raspberry. Intensely spicy and impressively long. A very young, solidly structured wine that already shows loads of personality. 91+ (ST) Inner quote mark (3/1999)
