Robert Parker 91-92 points - "The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Roncieres offers a fascinating Cabernet Franc-like hint of machine oil along with ripe red cherry, tobacco, cedar, and wood smoke in the nose. Clean, sweet, bright fruit makes for an intense and refreshing palate impression and the finish introduces carnal notes, faint bitterness of herbal concentrate, persistent ripe red fruit with invigorating tart fruit skin notes, and a hint of new wood that Chevillon says is there because this wine was so late to go through malo and to be racked out of its initial one-third new wood and into older barrels. If further proof were needed that the Chevillons are in a class by themselves among the major Nuits-St.-Georges landholders, they certainly delivered it this year. Like so many other vintners, they reported backing off on pigeage this year – and heaven knows, the resultant wines don’t lack for concentration."
