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

SKU #1399254 96 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2017 Domaine Chevillon Vaucrains is deep, pure and supremely elegant out of the blocks this year, with the nose offering up a gorgeous aromatic blend of black cherries, pomegranate, dark chocolate, gamebird, woodsmoke, complex soil tones, a hint of nutskin and a bit of cedary new oak. On the palate the wine is very pure, full-bodied and the most reserved wine in the cellars today, with a rock solid core of fruit, exceptional transparency, ripe, perfectly integrated tannins and superb focus and grip on the very, very long and promising finish. The wine turns nicely sappy on the backend and shows off some of its future greatness. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Les Vaucrains is marked by its proximity to the combe at the southern end of Nuits-St-Georges, which gives the wine an added lift of freshness. Like Les St-Georges which abuts it, this is quite a firm, shuttered wine with an overlay of 30% new wood, good concentration, fine tannins and enough backbone and acidity to age. Drinking Window 2025-2030. (TA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As usual, the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains is the most structured, tight-knit wine in the Chevillon cellar, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and rich soil, framed by smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly tannic and concentrated, with imposingly broad shouldered structure and a deep, reserved core. Again, patience will be required and rewarded.

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a little more precision than the Les Saint-Georges on the nose: the terroir more articulated, greater energy conveyed by the aromatics. The pure, precise palate is beautifully balanced with filigreed tannin and an effervescent and very sustained finish that is pure class. This could well be the standout from Chevillon this year. A wine from the top drawer. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Relatively generous wood fights a bit with the otherwise cool and pure aromas of extract of cassis, plum, humus, earth and suggestions of the sauvage. As is usually the case chez Chevillon, this is a very powerful wine with imposing size and weight with fine mid-palate density thanks to the abundant dry extract that also helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine that really emerges on the beautifully long finale. *Sweet Sot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

92-95 points, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "For him more masculine. Lively fresh purple. And classier. More puissant fin de bouche. Really dense fresh purple colour. I adore the tension and balance of this, very rigorous profound finish with another wave of fruit coming in behind. Really long too." (01/2019)
