    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Robert Chevillon, Nuits St Georges, Vieilles Vignes, 2009

    Deeply coloured, ripe Nuits, flamboyant flavours of cherry liqueur and griotte, touches of smouldering mulberry and mulled spices, finishing on brighter, more vivid flavours of bitter sweet cherries, juicy and sumptuous.

    ABV:
    13%
    88/100
    Antonio Galloni, Vinous
    The 2009 Nuits St. Georges is round, sexy, showy and very 2009 in character. Early notes of aromatic complexity are just beginning to develop in bottle, making this a highly attractive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet cherries, tobacco, spices and leather inform the creamy, textured finish.

    Robert’s two sons, Bertrand and Denis, now look after the winemaking and viticulture respectively. Their vineyards stretch from the far south side of Nuits St-Georges to the very north side next to Vosne-Romanée. All of the wines demonstrate harmony, ripe fruit and structure thanks to both hard work in the vineyard by Denis (who insists on low yields and a strict grape selection) and to a fermentation and barrique elevage carefully controlled by Bertrand. There are no frills or careful secrets here, the crop is destalked, fermented and agedin in a maximum of one third new oak for the top crus. These wines are the product of terroir-knowledge and hard, hands-on, work. It is a great compliment to them both that their wines are so balanced yet still maintain the individuality and character that emanates from their terroir. The vineyards south of Nuits (Pruliers and Vaucrains) tend to have more muscle and drive while those nearer Vosne, such as the Chaignots, verge more on elegance and silkiness.
