Community Tasting Note

  • RAMwines wrote: 89 points

    December 27, 2012 - The '07 Chevillon Villages displayed all of the barnyard nose characteristics that you would expect, very similar to many Oregon Pinots, along with some dark berry aromas. A very pleasant nose that further led the unsophisticated Burgundy taster toward the anticipated Premier Cru experience of the earlier Chevillon Les Bousselots. But on the palate the differences began to become apparent. The Villages Burg was relatively open and ready to be enjoyed with lots of fruit and some earthy tones. The wine developed nicely in the mouth and maintained a relatively long and enjoyable finish. However, there was a slight abruptness to the overall balance that definitely separated this Villages wine from the earlier Premier Cru.

    Overall the Villages version was enjoyable and earned a rating of 89 points on my personal Burgundy scale. It would be interesting to see what a couple of more years in the cellar might bring to this wine. But considering the $56 price tag, I think I'll pass in favor of the Premier Crus that are only a couple of dollars more.
