Browning around the edge, translucent Translucent but the color of Georgia red clay. On the nose chanterelle mushrooms, tea rose, bridal boquet (dried but not like a marriage gone bad more like a marriage mellowed), sweet spice. Easy on the palate, not deep, but lingering pleasant memories of ginger, cinnamon, queen anne cherries, kumquat peels, and nuit st. george dust.
Vertical Tasting of Chevillon Nuits Vieilles Vignes (Vin Vino, Palo Alto): Lightest color of all of these wines along with the '04, yet an unexpectedly meaty, sweet, soil-infused nose. By far, the most mature of the bunch. In contrast to the nose, the palate is delicate, gently sweet with nice minty complexity (like the '01 in this respect), and has higher acid than the '99, which gives it a sharper finish than that wine. Still, it is delicious and exceeded my expectations for the vintage.
Iron, metal shavings in the nose with pine, bark and rust notes. Really cool and mineral/metal nose- pretty clean just not super fruit driven. Theres is ample tannin, but not overbearing. great cherry and spice to complement the more mineral.iron flavors in the mouth. not particularly lush- good showing for a village wine at age 9. Ill drink my last in the next year, but am not in a hurry.
