Robert Parker 92-94
“The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrières has a more floral and mineral-driven bouquet, a bit of light after the broodier Roncier. The palate is medium-bodied with a confit-like entry, quite intense with concentrated with veins of fresh fig discretely interwoven into the red berry fruit. There is sense of compactness here and it is only in the last third that it stretches its arms. This is a lovely Les Perrières from Chevillon.”
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2040
Bright medium red. Sexy scents of raspberry, crushed stone and flinty minerality; at once redder and rockier than the foregoing samples. Then supple and fine-grained but quite penetrating on the palate, with its raspberry and cherry flavors complicated by smoke and earth nuances. Finishes brisk and long, with substantial dusty tannins.
