DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 88-91

“A spicy nose offers a subtle step up in aromatic elegance with its very fresh nose of black raspberry and soft earth hints. There is good verve and detail to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess good volume and phenolic maturity of the structural elements, all wrapped in a tight and moderately austere finish.” (January, 2014)

 

Vinous Media (Antonio Galloni) 90-92

“The 2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Chaignots is one of the more supple wines in this range. As such, it won't demand as much cellar time as many of the other Chevillon 2012s. Gently spiced notes open up in the glass, followed by sweet red berries, flowers and cinnamon. The 2012 is soft and understated, with lovely overall balance and tons of medium-term appeal. This is another gracious, totally inviting wine from Chevillon.” (January, 2014)

 

Wine Advocate (Neal Martin) 89-91

“The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots comes from the northern flank of the vineyard It is endowed with a voluminous and positively generous bouquet packed to the rafters with dark berries and autumn forest aromas the proliferate in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins that lend it a foursquare nature. Like many of Chevillon’s 2012s, this is “neat” and focused with a structured harmonious finish that is well-behaved. It will provide fine early drinking pleasure and shows great class.” (December, 2013)
