Lightly-cooked plum, blond tobacco and hints of game on the nose of Chevillons’ 2007 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Chaignots promise intriguing complexity on the palate, but while that is delivered, with it comes a measure of gum-numbing tannin. Soy-like, saline savor serves for saliva-inducement that is essential under these circumstances, and together with sweet fruit flesh and hints of tart fruit skin largely override the effects of the tannin in a lingering finish. I would want to revisit this within the next 4-5 years to prognosticate as to its further potential, if any.
A slight brown edge. Sweetish strawberry nose , some caramel too. No overt oak on the palate, but the feeling of sugar or glycerine is apparent on the modestly concentrated palate. This is good and ready today.~
