Chevillon Nuits St Georges les Roncieres Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Roncières is another absolutely stellar young bottle of Nuits St. Georges in the works chez Chevillon. The beautiful and very sappy nose soars from the glass in a beautiful mélange of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, lovely soil tones, a touch of nutskin, violets and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and again, very sappy at the core, with striking transparency, impeccable balance, fine-grained tannins and exceptional length and grip on the finish. As I have finally come to understand that the Roncières is the premier cru in the Chevillon stable that is most likely to consistently develop an intense black truffle character with bottle age, I have been paying closer and closer attention to this cuvée in the last several years- much to my benefit. The 2010 Roncières is quite simply the finest young example of this wine I have ever had the pleasure to taste...94" John Gilman, A View from the Cellar 12/11
