Tuesday, March 28, 2006 - The mushroom medley in particular was a match made in heaven for the Chevillon, which is clearly in its window of maturity, albeit the early side of that window. Everything about this wine is redolent of forest floor, underbrush, and black soil and marries superbly with those mushrooms, as Burgundy always does. The color is still impressively deep, but on the palate the toughness of the Nuits briar patch has melted away, leaving a suave wine painted partially in primary flavors and partially in secondary ones. This one is clearly from a ripe year, but it is nowhere as muddled as many 1990's; what it may lack in ultimate focus and clarity is more than compensated for by the sheer stylishness of this juice. Lovely, typical Les Cailles from Chevillon; drink from now until 2015 at least.
