2017 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Roncières" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1399252 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This premier cru's position on the south side of Nuits, just below Les Perrières, means that it has a high limestone content and it shows in the freshness of the resulting wine. It's bright, perfumed and focussed, with stylish 30% new wood integration, plenty of structure and depth and a poised finish. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I have a weakness for the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Roncières, an inviting wine that bursts with aromas of blackberries, cassis, sweet soil tones and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy with an ample core of succulent fruit, rich structuring tannins and a long, vibrant finish. This will offer a broad drinking window.

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Roncières 1er Cru has an intriguing bouquet of black cherries and bergamot, a touch of Earl Grey developing with aeration. The palate is defined by its filigreed tannin and crisp line of acidity, gentle in style to the point that you almost miss the backbone on the finish. There is something very natural about this Les Roncières … (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark In recent times I have been starting to come around to the conclusion that the Roncières is the most underrated premier cru in the stellar lineup from Domaine Chevillon, as this wine ages beautifully each and every year and turns into one of the most elegant examples of Nuits St. Georges to be found in all the Côte d’Or. The 2017 Roncières is indeed exceptional, and this too may be one of the very finest recent vintages of this bottling, as it offers up a stunning aromatic constellation of red plums, cherries, raw cocoa, chalky soil tones, gamebird, vanillin oak and a nice touch of rose petal in the upper register. On the palate the wine is very pure, very refined and full-bodied, with the vintage’s telltale sappiness on the display in the mid-palate, great focus and grip, suave tannins and a very, very long, complex and utterly refined finish. Do not overlook the 2017 Roncières chez Chevillon, as this wine is great! Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Moderate wood sets off a spicy array that includes plum, violet and a suggestion of lavender. The beautifully vibrant middle weight flavors possess an attractive mouthfeel thanks mainly to the notably fine grained tannins shaping the impressively complex and persistent finish. The wood expressed by the nose does resurface though my sense is that it will ultimately be successfully integrated. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Middling deep purple, a slightly sterner nose here, youthful fruit, tense stern stuff on the palate too more austerity, I thought, though Bertrand Chevillon finds it deeper and classier, with a nice mineral touch at the back anyway." (1/2019)
