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

SKU #1401155 94 points Decanter

 Very poor stony, chalky, soils are the source of this 0.6ha parcel close the town's famous quarry. This has quite a bit of sweet, aromatic oak, but it's balanced by flavours of strawberry and watermelon, fine-grained tannins and a refreshing, limestone-influenced finish. (TA)  (11/2018)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Aromas of cassis, plums, grilled squab and rich soil tones, elegantly framed by new wood, introduce the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrières, a medium to full-bodied wine that's firmer and more tensile in profile, with a deep core of sappy fruit, structured around fine-grained, chalky tannins that assert themselves on the long finish. This was a little less put together than some of Chevillon's 2017s when I tasted it, but its excellent potential is impossible to miss. (WK)  (1/2019)

93 points John Gilman

 It is such an embarrassment of riches in the Chevillon cellars in 2017! The Perrières is an absolutely classic example of this fine premier cru, offering up a red fruity nose of red plums, cherries, a touch of pomegranate, stony soil tones, pigeon, raw cocoa, roses and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and rock solid at the core, with great backend mineral drive, fine focus and grip, ripe tannins and a very long, very refined and promising finish. Great juice. 2027-2065.  (1/2019)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is at once elegant and earthy with its mix of red cherry, violet, anise and wisp of forest floor. There is a bit more volume to the vibrant, pure and seductive medium-bodied flavors that aren't quite as powerful but even longer on the firmly structured and dusty finish. Despite the seductive mid-palate, the imposing tannic spine makes it clear that this is going to need at least some cellaring.  (1/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

 The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Perrières 1er Cru has a more compact bouquet compared to the Les Bousselots, very focused and precise and natural in style; a faint oyster shell scent percolates through the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, hints of Moroccan spice and leather, lovely cohesion and just a hint of dark chocolate toward the finish. Excellent. (NM)  (1/2019)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Medium dense purple, gorgeous nose, as bounding as Bousselots but with more steel. A few tannins behind but the quality and volume of the fruit denies austerity. A few black notes creeping in, perhaps some sweet blueberries. Very attractive." (1/2019)
