2012 Domaine Jean Chauvenet Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les PerrièresTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Perrières from Jean Chauvenet has a endearing bouquet, very well defined with red cherries, fresh strawberries and fine mineralité. This is pure and somehow effortless, with very well handled use of oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. The acidity is spot on though there is a touch of oak to be assimilated. But there is certainly with impressive substance with a sensual, spicy finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a very succinct and sensual Nuits-Saint Georges from Chauvenet.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
