2016 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Roncières" (Previously $120)

SKU #1400085 93 points John Gilman

 The 2016 Roncières from Domaine Chevillon is every bit as brilliant as the Chaignots this year, but it is a tad more reserved in personality and will need a bit more time in the cellar to blossom fully. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a stellar blend of red and black raspberries, black cherries, bitter chocolate, a fine base of soil, vanillin oak and an exotic topnote of eucalyptus. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with great focus and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a very long, very, very promising finish. Great juice.  (1/2018)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A fresh and quite densely fruited nose combines notes of red and dark cherry, cranberry and plenty of both spice and warm earth wisps. The beautifully intense and chiseled middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the dusty, firm and palate coating finish that also flashes a touch of youthful austerity. This isn't the densest wine in the range but the balance is impeccable. *Outstanding*  (1/2018)

90-93 points Vinous

 Bright red with ruby tones. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Richer and fatter than the Bousselots but also a bit medicinal and lower-pitched, offering flavors of dark fruits and dark chocolate. Finishes drier in a classical way, with bigger shoulders and more obvious tannins than the Vosne-side Bousselots, if not quite that wine's class. (ST)  (1/2018)

92 points Decanter

 The Roncières is lovely, opening in the glass with aromas of blackberry, currant leaf and meaty bass notes. The wine is rich, full-bodied and structurally firmer than the Chaignots and Bousselots, its chassis of tannin asserting itself on the finish. This will be beautiful after a decade in the cellar. (WK)  (10/2017)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Roncière felt more muted on the nose at this stage despite aeration, developing a subtle tertiary/woodland note after five minutes in the glass. The palate is structured and masculine, a serious Nuits Saint Georges that will hopefully evolve a little more corpulence toward the finish by the time this is in bottle. (NM)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

93 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Plump delicious purple, lifted dark raspberry notes, a slightly more solid structure, very ripe but still red fruit leaps up behind. More red fruit at the finish vying with the perfume of super-ripe cherries plus some herbal notes. Good acid tannin balance." (01/2018)
