This will be a joy to watch (and taste) as it evolves so pick up one for now and one for later! In its youth, it will enchant with freshness and intense fruit. The structure and aromatic density show tremendous potential for the long term with pure and seductive medium-bodied flavors that linger long on the dusty finish.
Aromas of cassis, plums, grilled squab and rich soil tones, elegantly framed by new wood, introduce the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrières, a medium to full-bodied wine that's firmer and more tensile in profile, with a deep core of sappy fruit, structured around fine-grained, chalky tannins that assert themselves on the long finish. This was a little less put together than some of Chevillon's 2017s when I tasted it, but its excellent potential is impossible to miss.
Very poor stony, chalky, soils are the source of this 0.6ha parcel close the town's famous quarry. This has quite a bit of sweet, aromatic oak, but it's balanced by flavours of strawberry and watermelon, fine-grained tannins and a refreshing, limestone-influenced finish.
