Domaine Denis Chevillon, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru 1989

Chevillon Nuits Pruliers 1989 #3

Twenty-five years on tasting.

Not surprisingly, significant bottle variation at this stage: some of these are too soft (tendre).  Second bottle is a heart on fire, sensual and fondued: caramelized quetsch and groseille, orange-peel, perigord, pan-drippings.  Tender and sweet with just enough intensity and backbone to follow-through.  The finish is meticulous, a chiseled detail of Prémeaux limestone and oolite.  Evocative Pruliers but time to drink up, before the mist turns to vapor.
