2005 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St. Georges"

SKU #1071692 95-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges again illustrates roasted richness and a seamless meld of meat, fruit and mineral. Hints of tar and toasted pecan add further aromatic complexity. Dramatically expansive and mouth-coating, with endless variations – distilled, fresh, sorbet-like – on black cherry, purple plum, and their pits, this wine weaves tar, iodine, and chalk into its supremely long finish. The incipiently velvety texture and fineness of tannin are remarkable for so young a wine. Few Grand Cru offerings from 2005 can surpass this Les St.-Georges, a wine I would cellar for a decade before even re-assessing. (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines kirsch, licorice and minerals; this, too, has a liqueur-like aspect but retains freshness and lift. Sweet but tangy in the mouth, with firm minerality and stony character giving the dark fruit and violet flavors terrific lift. Wonderfully sappy, tactile wine, finishing with suave, broad tannins and superb mounting persistence. A transcendent Nuits-Saint-Georges in the making: this has the fine-grained texture, nuance and dimension of a grand cru. One of the most promising wines I've tasted from this estate in a long time. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2007)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. A deft touch of wood sets off the seductively enveloping aromas of cassis and black cherry extract that can also be found on the opulent, concentrated, powerful and sleekly muscled flavors that convey a real sense of volume without compromising the refined character. While not deeper or more complex, this is ever-so-slightly longer than the Les Cailles and should also be capable of a very long aging curve. Equally impressive if different. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2007)
