The 2013 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots has darker fruit on the nose than the village cru: blackberry and raspberry, light sous-bois scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly lactic entry, hints of mocha lining the red berry fruit with quite a forward, sumptuous finish that comes as a surprise given the vintage. This may improve once in bottle.
Ruby. Cherry and earth. Medium weight but much more sap than the Vieilles Vignes. Delicious and a large step up. Especially after tasting 3 other vintages of this last night, it is easy to say that this an underrated cru from Chevillon.~
