The 2013 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru les Bousselots has a crisp and focused, quite minerally bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannins; lighter in the mouth than, say, the 2012 last year, but with plenty of freshness toward the finish. Drink this over the next four to seven years while waiting for the premier crus to reach their plateaux.||Bertrand Chevillon was “en forme” when I visited him at his domaine in the suburbs of Nuits Saint Georges. Unlike last year, when I was simply unable to locate his winery, this time I was punctual and received no reprimand. He enthused about his 2013 for good reason because he, together with his brother Denis, produced a clutch of great wines in this challenging vintage. Just like elsewhere, his old vines suffered more than the younger and in the worst affected parcels he lost around 40% of the crop due to poor flowering. He picked October 3-11 and matured his premier crus in around 30% new wood, due to be bottled in April 2015. I felt that these wines were nimble, bright and tensile. More linear than the 2012s last year, they appear to be born with plenty of energy and animation, each expressing their terroirs with style. Price have crept up in recent years, but overall they still represent decent value considering the quality and longevity. eRobertParker.com.December, 2014
