Barrel sample, racked after malo only. Riper and more intense on the nose than the Vieilles Vignes. Then more subtle on the palate, almost chalky in texture. Lovely restraint. (JH)

Vinous – 91/100
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru has a very well defined, floral bouquet of seductive, elegant red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas, a level up from the Village Cru. The pure, poised palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannin and a light spicy note toward the elegant finish. It reminds me of Mugneret-Gibourg, which is no bad thing in my book.
