Don’t get lost in the hype of the 2015 vintage and miss all that the 2014 vintage has to offer—particularly from hands as talented as Bertrand and Denis Chevillon in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The Chevillons are known for a few things: a style of Nuits with finesse that prevails over structure, a total commitment to the appellation with holdings in most of its best crus, convincing consistency from year to year, and incredible aging potential. There are not a lot of “no-brainer” purchases in Burgundy, but this is definitely one of them.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
