Lot #40. Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Cailles 2012

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
"I am never surprised by how beautiful the potential is of this wine when tasting the new vintage in the Chevillons family’s cellars, and the 2012 is going to be one of those wines that fans of this estate are just going to have to find some way to purchase- no matter what barriers are constructed in front of them! This brilliant wine is very deep and nicely reserved on the nose, offering up a bottomless blend of red and black cherries, red plums, nutskin, a stunningly complex base of soil, gamebirds, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still very primary, with a great core of fruit, firm, suave tannins, tangy acids and a very, very long, primary and gorgeous finish of enormous potential. Simply a brilliant wine in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2013, Issue #48
Provenance: The Imperial Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
