2005 Domaine Phillipe & Vincent Lecheneaut Nuits-St.-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers

Fernand Lecheneaut created this 22-acre estate in the early 1960s while he worked for a negociant in Beaune. His sons Phillipe and Vincent took over in 1985. All their vines are in the Côte de Nuits spread through Nuits-St.-Georges, Morey-St.-Denis, Vosne-Romanee and Chambolle-Musigny, with a small parcel of the Grand Cru Clos de la Roche. Production is 6,000 cases per year with 13 different bottlings. · The hype about 2005 Burgundy seems to be warranted. Perfumed with cherries and roses, opulent and layered with a citric tang, the finish is long and stylish. Reviewed August 6, 2007
