2018 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St-Georges" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1468397 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges is also showing brilliantly, mingling aromas of dark berry fruit, plums and cherries with nuances of baking chocolate, rich soil tones and subtle carnal nuances. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and muscular, with real concentration and substance. This is a lively, sapid, broad-shouldered Les Saint-Georges that will be very long lived. (WK) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru comes from a single half-hectare of vines. The beautifully defined, very precise bouquet gathers momentum with aeration, strangely reminding me of Clos des Ducs in the Côtes de Beaune; it is just magnificent. The medium-bodied palate offers filigreed tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, just the right amount of sapidity to get the saliva flowing and almost clinical definition on the persistent finish. It is everything you want in a Les Saint-Georges, brushing off the warmth of the 2018 growing season with style. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Definitely at the riper end of the spectrum in Nuits-St-Georges in 2018, although not excessively so, this is a plush, slightly jammy expression of this famous Premier Cru site, with aromatic 30% new wood, balancing acidity and some of the grunt and grip that are typical of the terroir. The finish has commendable focus and precision. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Monsieur Chevillon reported that his parcel in Les St. Georges was down about thirty percent in 2018. The wine shows of great purity and depth on the nose, delivering scents of sappy dark berries and black cherries, espresso, pigeon, a complex base of soil tones and a nice touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is very deep, very powerful and impressively transparent in personality at the same time, with bottomless depth of fruit at the core, firm, ripe and chewy tannins and a very, very long, very well-balanced finish. This will need plenty of time and will always be a powerful vintage of Chevillon Les St. Georges, but this will also be an excellent wine for a long, long time, once it is finally ready to drink. 2035-2080.

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A deft dollop of oak surrounds the liqueur-like aromas of various dark berries, forest floor, spice and sauvage nuances. There is excellent density to the sappy, textured and distinctly powerful flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also helps to partially buffer the firm and definitely grippy tannic spine on the slightly drying finish that comes up a bit short. I would make the same observation here as I made with the Les Cailles, which is to say that while this is good, I suspect that the hail damage is preventing this from being at its usual outstanding level. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Les St Georges was the vineyard the worst affected by the hail, down 30%. Dense purple, a few plums, nothing in the way of hail-affected flavours, but perhaps less majestic than usual. There is intensity and a crystalline energy, perhaps not quite as sumptuous as usual."
