The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Chaignots has a ripe cassis and blueberry-scented nose that does not quite have the depth of the Beaune Grèves that I tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, just a little linear in the mouth, a Nuits Saint Georges that refuses to fan out or gain depth on the finish. Not bad, but I prefer the Beaune Grèves.
