Robert Parker – 91
The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots, a vineyard that I have a soft spot for, has a very pure, nubile, red cherry, crushed strawberry and cassis-tinged bouquet that is utterly seductive. The palate is beautiful: fine tannins, layers of dark cherry, black plum fruit with an almost confit-like finish that has wonderful definition and superb length. It might not possess the sophistication of Les Saint Georges or the Vaucrains, but the bottom line is that it is absolutely delicious.

Deep crimson. Very ripe fruit aroma – almost fruit cake. Firm and a bit tough on the palate. Not sure if this is the wine or the sample but it does not seem very fresh, and the finish is a little tough. (JH)

Vinous – 88-90
Dark red-ruby. Black raspberry and a suggestion of almost porty chocolatey ripeness on the nose. Then dense and juicy in the mouth, showing very good intensity and a repeating ripe chocolatey quality to its rich dark fruit flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and an impression of medicinal reserve.
