Domaine Hubert Chauvenet-Chopin, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Murgers 1er Cru 1999

Chauvenet-Chopin Nuits Murgers 1999

Fifteen-years on tasting.

In color and substance this is inchoate and stern: shoe-polish, cherries steeped in alcohol and a gravelly darkness.  Building tannin.  Subsumed by its architecture.  Kernels of fragrant fruit and ore at the end.  It speaks for ’99 red burgundy: only time can unlock the complexity inherent here.  From 2018.
