2017 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Cailles"

SKU #1489780 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Les Cailles is one of the Chevillon brothers' best parcels, planted in the 1930s on a stony site next to Les St-Georges. It's an impressive red showing stony minerality, some vanilla spice and more underlying tannin than you think at first. The acidity drives the finish of the wine. (TA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chevillon's low yielding, 80-year-old vines have produced a terrific 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles that ranks among the range's high points, unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of ripe cherries, dried flowers, candied peel and peonies. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety with a deep, multidimensional core, beautiful purity of fruit and a long, expansive finish. Stylistically, Les Cailles is one of the most elegant wines in the range. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2017 les Cailles from Bertrand Chevillon is a stunning wine in the making. The already quite beautiful bouquet delivers a superb and absolutely classic blend of cherries, plums, raw cocoa, a very complex base of minerality, gamebird, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and properly reserved out of the blocks, with a great core of sappy fruit, beautiful soil signature, ripe, seamless tannins and great length and grip on the focused, perfectly balanced and oh, so promising finish. All this great wine needs is time in the cellar to fully blossom! 94+ Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark As is virtually always the case, this is more aromatically elegant and spicier and in 2017 the nose of essence of raspberry, cherry, violet and soft herbal tea notes is also notably spicier. There is excellent richness and a highly beguiling vibrancy to the well-detailed and stony medium-bodied flavors that deliver a lovely combination of punch and finesse on the sneaky long finish. In sum, this beautifully well-balanced effort is Zen-like. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru has a mixture of red and black fruit on a nose of great clarity and focus; undergrowth scents filter in with aeration. The palate is extremely well balanced, exerting a gentle but insistent grip in the mouth. It feels a little chalky in texture. Shows great body and fine density; hints of orange peel come through toward the finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Dense centre to this brilliant purple. The nose has a black fruit tension, so too the palate, does not quite fill the whole mouth because more linear in style. Lots of stones here to explain that. Some tannins." (1/2019)
