PnP Medium ruby color. I would totally love to own a few of this '01! Amazing nose and depth of fruit on the palate.The nose couldn't be more in your face and facinating. Fresh, vibrant and velvety. Wonderful weight and no signs of oak anywhere. In a great place now but should last for a long time too. A real headturning epiphany wine if you've never had a Chevillon. Hale Chevillon! Buy whatever they make! One of my biggest Burngundy mistakes not buying a lot more Chevillon 5yrs or 10yrs ago. Right now, I own 16 btls plan to keep backfilling.
Took 45 minutes to open up (came from very cool cellar) and then developed significantly over the next hour. Superb; better than the several vintages of Vaucrains I've had from Chevillon. Prominent iron/minerals but then enormously aromatically complex nose with sous-bois-funk, hints of sweet pain d'epices, just layers of stuff going on here. Quite a light wine. I think this will improve over 3-5 years and then peak.
