A fine dark ruby colour. This wine opens with red-fruit aromas on the nose, mixed with fiery, woody and smoky notes. On the palate, it is rich and supple. It's a wine of very beautiful substance, well-balanced between finesse and strength. The structure of the blended tannins makes this wine pleasantly harmonious.

Wine SpectatorCompelling aromas and flavors of black cherry and licorice are accented by sandalwood and sweet spice in this dense, powerful red. Intense and long, featuring fine balance and a fresh, spice-tinged finish. Best from 2015 through 2027. 80 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastAux Chaignots is a vineyard to the north of the town of Nuits-St-Georges, which is not far from Vosne-Romanée. Its location imparts firm, dominating tannins. It is dense, with a determined structure. The acidity and fruit are there, and they're likely to show through over the next 4-5 years.
