2020 is one of the top vintages from this great Nuits St., Georges producer. This wine has incredible concentration and power, which works with the classic style of this producer. This is a serious village wine that is from very old vines and rivals many a premier cru from the village.
Burghound 89-92 pts! Dark berry fruit coulis is laced with notes of earth and spice. The delicious middle weight flavors possess excellent punch before culminating in a sleek, intense and only mildly rustic finale. This is an excellent Nuits villages and very much worth your attention. (Drink starting 2028)
John Gilman 91 pts! The 2020 Nuits old vine bottling is excellent chez Chevillon. The bouquet is beautifully pure and sappy, jumping from the glass in a mix of black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, a touch of nutskin, gamebird, a fine base of soil tones and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and shows off plenty of mid-palate depth, with lovely focus and grip, tangy acids, ripe, buried tannins and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is outstanding villages Nuits, but it will need some time to soften up its tannins.
