Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles Premier Cru 2006


I'm yet to taste a poor Robert Chevillon wine.  This is another outstanding one, this time from Nuits-Saint-Georges and the premier cru appellation of Les Cailles.  Les Cailles is a 7.11 hectare plot and is directly north of Les Saint-Georges, the greatest climat in Nuits-Saint-Georges.  It is said to be subtle, feminine and have softer fruit flavours.  In the glass, the 2006 vintage of Chevillon's Les Cailles, has rich aromas of blackcurrant.  The palate is full bodied with hints of licorice, the finish long and the acidity towards high.  This is a delicious wine that can be approached now, or safely cellared for a further decade.  Rating: Very Good to Outstanding. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $200+. Website: www.domainerobertchevillon.fr
