Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "LES CAILLES" 2011 - Robert Chevillon
The Cailles is one of the wines of the golden triangle of Nuits-Saint-Georges with Vaucrains and Porets. The Chevillon brothers produced some of the best wines of the appellation. This wine combines power and subtlety, and it is built to guard. This wine will need time because the potential is huge. Very comprehensive and complex, it has everything for fun. A rare wine cellar and forget to share in good company. Note that the quantities are very limited.

2011 in Burgundy, is a relatively early vintage. The vine pushed smoothly until June, with almost three weeks early due to a particularly hot spring. In July, with the freshness and rain, the cycle has slowed, but sets out again in August, milder months. In the end, the wines do not lack wealth, but it is the delicacy of the tannins (for red) that makes the charm of the vintage, and low acidity makes them supple wines. The tannins are silky, pleasant fruit wines but sometimes lack a bit of ""pep"" and as they are already very pleasant we think probably not at a very high guard. The de-nights-ribs well with the character typed but already pleasant to taste the fruit. Fairly fine material but that one should not spoil by too supported farms. In side-de-Beaune, the reds are also fruity and pleasant, with less structure in 2010 or 2009, but an easy character quite nice. The southern part (Volnay, Pommard) seems more successful than the northern part. The whites are of a style rather digestible and fresh, easy at first, but sometimes lack a little depth.
