Jasper Morris, 91-94 Points 

"Racked to tank. Chaignots enjoyed a slightly better yield at just above 25 hl/ha, because there was more juice in the grapes. Full rich purple. The nose has similar basic characteristics of ripe fruit but is not too concentrated. Very good depth thereafter, and as with all the wines here the fruit is that little bit fresher on the palate than the nose. Good acidity at the finish."

"The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru was the parcel that was least impacted by the dryness according to Antoine Gouges and so there was a little more juice and higher yield (25-30hl/ha). This has a pure and floral bouquet that unfolds nicely in the glass, a mixture of red and black fruit with hints of violet. The palate is sweet on the entry with fine, slightly chalky tannins. Fine cohesion here, precise on the finish, this Chaignots is showing a great deal of promise." 

Burghound, 90-93 Points 

"Notes of menthol, spice, warm earth, game and smoky dark berry aromas give way to rich, generously proportioned and more refined middle weight flavors that culminate in a lingering and more complex finale. This is lovely and should repay up to a decade of cellaring. *Outstanding*

John Gilman, 92 Points 

"The 2020 Chaignots from the Gouges family is the ripest wine in the cellar in this vintage, as it comes in at an even fifteen percent alcohol, but it does not show this on either the nose or the palate. How it has been able to maintain such a fine sense of balance and freshness at this octane level is a mystery to me. The bouquet is excellent, offering up a blend of sappy dark berries, black cherries, dark soil tones, a touch of coffee grounds, bonfire, gamebird and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy, with fine focus and balance, ripe, seamless tannins and a long, complex and classy finish. Perhaps the only sign that this wine is riper than the other premier crus in the cellar this year is that it is more fruit-driven in personality than the other premier crus, but in all other respects, it carries its octane amazingly well and there is no signs of sur maturité or heat on the backend. (Drink between 2035-2080)"
