Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Champs-Perdrix 2005

Posted by

The Champs-Perdrix vineyards near Nuits-Saint-Georges in Burgundy produce some excellent and well priced wines, and is especially worth looking at in strong vintages. This particular burgandy is, I believe, the first of the 2005’s I have had the opportunity to experience. I was expecting a lot given the vintage, but was also a little trepidant given how few ‘cheaper’ Burgundies have been at all exciting.

The nose had solid red fruits like strawberry and cherry. But what made it interesting were the unique spice aromas that accented the fruit. This had good length and development, with outstanding grip and clarity of expression. I found this long and soft, but refined and structured. A great wine to start experiencing 2005 Burgundy.
