On the light side for the vintage, but feminine and elegantly balanced with red berry persistence on the mineral-lazed and focused finish. Thru 2022.

Very complete, sappy and structured - bodes well for the premier crus

I love me some good Chevillon and this bottle hits way above its league. A bit dusty, yet very perfumed and flowery aroma. Palate is just a tad too loud with alcohol, but very pleasant overall with stunning finish. Many things are going on here: spicy smoked meats, overripe black currant, heranium, lilies, hot plastic, generous amount of arrowwood berry, candied ripe strawberries — quite feminine overall, but grippy tannins don't give you a break. This will age wonderfully for 7-10 years easily.

Continuing my Bourgogne journey with Nuit St-Georges. Garnet color, darker than the Beaune, Gev-Cham, and Morey-St.D I tried previous weeks. Nose lacks the red fruits almost completely and is more intense, rich and with darker fruits and some oak handling; taste is more tannic and rich but this first glass (15 min after double decanting) is rather tight uninteresting. Second glass (1.5 h later) showed great improvement on the nose: much more interesting, complex and intense, still only dark fruits with some mushroom and other forest aromas; on the palate however it is still unevolved and rough. I guess the textbooks are correct that Nuit St. George should not be drunk young. But this whole Burgundy experience has made me a PN fan. Kaltbach from Switzerland and chianti sausage worked wonders with melon á la vanille jam and Mary J Blige.
