Wine Spectator 91 points - The Chevillon 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Bousselots mingles ripe blackberry and cherry with brown spices, coconut, and chocolate; offers a richly-fruited and pliable palate impression; then finishes with a welcome suggestion of fresh berry cut and berry skin tartness as well as intimations of mineral and carnal dimensions. For now, it advances only modestly beyond the enormous pleasure (coupled with minimal intrigue) that are to be derived from the corresponding (””old vines””) village bottling - the one-third new barrel here explain much of the difference - and I would similarly anticipate this remaining accessible short term and fresh for at least a half dozen years.
A feral character overlays the pure cherry, red currant and mineral notes in this slim, intense red. Persistent and firmly structured, with lingering fruit and spice accents on the aftertaste. Just needs a few years to come together. Best from 2011 through 2020. 35 cases imported.
