"The Chaignots is always the most extroverted premier cru in the Chevillon cellars and the style of the 2017 vintage dovetails perfectly with this cru. The bouquet is deep, pure and sappy, jumping from the glass in a fine blend of black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, a touch of pigeon, a lovely base of soil, vanillin oak and a floral topnote redolent of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very refined and sappy, with lovely soil undertow, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, very precise and absolutely seductive finish. This is one of the best recent vintages for the Chevillon Chaignots that I can recall! (Drink between 2023-2060)" John Gilman A View from the Cellar 92+

"The proximity to the southern side of Vosne is in evidence as here the expressive nose of pure red and dark berry scents cut with warm earth is quite spicy. In the same fashion as the nose, there is a lovely texture to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence both fine depth and length. I like the balance and there is enough stuffing that this could be approached early but it should also have no trouble amply repay mid-term cellaring." Burghound 90-92 points 

"The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru has a very well defined, floral bouquet of seductive, elegant red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas, a level up from the Village Cru. The pure, poised palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannin and a light spicy note toward the elegant finish. It reminds me of Mugneret-Gibourg, which is no bad thing in my book. (Drink between 2020-2032)" Vinous 90-92 points
