Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges Les Pruliers 2006

SKU 31065


Robert Chevillon is one of the most conscientious winemakers in the entire Côte d'Or. The succession of Nuits-St.-Georges which emerge from his cellar are among the finest in the commune; not the dark, lumpy, rustic concoctions which often appear under this over-exposed appellation, but wines of real depth and complexity, classy and stylish.

Wine AdvocateBlack raspberry and plum, along with toasted pecan scent the Chevillon 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Pruliers, which then comes to the palate with more restrained sweetness of fruit and more overt suggestions of minerality - wet stone and iodine - than other Chevillon 2006s. Firmness of tannin is noticeable here, but unlike with the Perrieres, that does not dry or coarsen the finish. This will benefit from a couple of years in bottle, I'm sure, and ought to then be worth following for at least another half dozen.
