Domaine Robert Chevillon, Vieilles Vignes Nuits Saint Georges 2013, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A ripe-fruit-forward red burgundy that proves you can enjoy pinot noir from Burgundy that isn’t under-ripe.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of ripe red fruit including strawberry and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir delivers ripe-fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is high in acidity and medium in tannin.
