Concentrated purple plum tinged with tamarind, peat, and black pepper lend Chevillons’ 2007 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Roncieres a satisfyingly ripe and persistently pungent personality. The juicy persistence here nicely incorporates the spice and smoke elements, and the tannins are finer-grained and less aggressive than in the corresponding Chaignots. I would anticipate satisfaction for at least 6-8 years. Chevillon wines nearly always surprise me with their stamina. (So perhaps I simply never learn!)
Light ruby. Black fruit and soil aromas. Some floral notes too. Medium weight. Intricate Nuits dance of red and black fruit intermingled with a long undercurrent of earth. Neither terribly acidic nor that tannic, so one needn't wait forever. Excellent Nuits.~
