Grand Cru In All But Name:
2008 Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les St-Georges

Posted by Ian McFadden

It's hard not to be excited. I never get to offer Chevillon's Les St-Georges, especially back-vintages.

If Nuits-St-Georges had a Grand Cru, it would be Les St-Georges. It's the most complete, complex, and aristocratic of the Nuits 1er Crus.

Chevillon is the king of Nuits-St-Georges. His parcel is only 0.6ha. You get the picture.

We love Chevillon's 2008s, and of course, the Les St-Georges leads the pack. Across the range, they are beautifully clear, and for all of their muscle, they are poised and lifted.

The 2008 Les St-Georges is brilliantly focused, with thundering length and complexity. There's nearly overwhelming intensity with pitch-perfect clarity. Les St-Georges ages amazingly well, and this wine's formidable structure is just beginning to open up. 

I wish that I had more to offer. I've had so many absolutely stunning bottles of old Les St-Georges that it's become an essential part of my cellar. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

To order, email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
