I have tasted the Bourgogne and the NSG Chaignots. Vosne to go. I would love to find some Chambolle. I don’t need the Grand Crus unless they happen to be reasonable.
This is the greatest small grouping of wines I have ever tasted from this Domaine. This is the kind of vintage that the sisters just kill. The Bourgogne is easily a village level wine. (Easily!)
It is actually better than most village level wines I have tasted. NSG Chaignots is very Vosne-like but with more density. The intensity of fruit is absolutely a stunner. Wow!
The NSG is VERY special. It is worth the tariff despite the fact that I was buying these in the double digits for quite a while. I have yet to taste my Vosnes. They are being held for me. FWIW.
Agree Don. Tasted the lineup at the domaine last November. The NSG has 40% new wood. I thought it excellent. Tasted with the 08 which was also good. The Chambolle Feusselottes was beautiful with a huge perfume, red fruits and great structure. The Echezeaux and Ruchottes, both with 80% new wood, were spectacular with unbelievable balance…the Ruchottes a bit more complex imo. And of course the Clos Vougeot…huge, dark fruited, spice and again super balance. You will love them if you haven’t tasted them yet. They hit it out of the park in 2010 imo.
Couldn’t agree more. The Chaignots is just a great wine every year. I served another 2 bottles of the 2000 on saturday night at a dinner party and they were fabulous as usual. My big mistake was only buying the chaignots in 6 packs every year from 05 on as previously I bought full cases!
The sisters have a gift, not to mention their charm.
Seems like prices are creeping up with the Domaine’s deserved popularity (and ofcourse the production decrease for '10). For the 08 VR I paid $55. The 09 was $59. The '10 retail price is currently around $85 in the US. Not sure if we’ll see much price adjustment, especially considering the quantity limitations and seemingly increased demand.
I have absolutely no doubt that this is lovely juice of 1er quality. Nevertheless, it’s hard to completely ignore the $'s.
Yes, I agree. I’m sure the wine is excellent, but I’m not sure I understand why people are so eager to buy their Chaignots at a tab that’s 3 times the price of Chevillon and Gouges, who are maestros of Nuits.
