Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes 2009, Robert Chevillon
The only wine from Robert Chevillon on Burgoblog is the Nuits St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Chaignots" 1999. Any change in 10 years? No. And that is a very good thing. This Nuits St-Georges vieilles vignes is fragrant, conjures an image of an Italian rose garden and wanders into soft spices. Once imbibed this 2009 suggests strawberries and their straw, its savoury, good acidity, crunchy, powerful and long lasting. If you are a Nuits St Georges fan and want a perfect 2009 benchmark -- this is the wine you seek. Tasted courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2009 tasting.
