Robert Chevillon, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots 2011

Les Bousselots 2011 from Domaine Robert Chevillon is a classic and pure Nuits-Saint-Georges. The nose offer pure quite tightly knit fruit with notes of mixed cherries and plum … backed by a quite substantial earthy minerality. On the palate focused with a lovely core of lively fruit … without any disturbing rustic elements. A quite refined NSG … lovely effort.

Domaine Dublere, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots 2012

The Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots is a step up in minerality and focus from the Morey Blanchards. The bouquet show slightly darker fruit – with notes of raspberries, dark charries and a lovely focusing earthy minerality. On the palate ample and intense fruit – juicy with a almost airy feel – very refined. The fruit is jellied with a sweet core balanced by a crisp acidity – adding a nice nerve and energy to the wine. Love the fruit and display of Nuits-Saint-Georges Terroir – A fine wine indeed.
