There's no doubt that if Domaine Robert Chevillon were based in Vosne-Romanee or Chambolle-Musigny, their wines would be next to impossible to find and sell for exorbitant prices. That they are found in Nuits-Saint-Georges, a village with no grand cru sites, has allowed these wines to fly under the radar for many consumers. That said, these are some of the most accomplished wines of Burgundy, and best of all continually produce wines that seemingly ignore any challenges a vintage might throw their way to achieve results seen only at very few of the finest addresses across the Cote.

Now under the stewardship of Robert Chevillon's sons Bertrand and Denis, these passionate pair of vignerons are tireless in their pursuit of the finest expression of Pinot Noir possible. After meticulous care in the vineyards across the year, grapes are hand harvested, sorted and de-stemmed before receiving a cold maceration in vats for 5-6 days and natural fermentation lasting 2-3 weeks. Maturation lasts from 15 to 18 months in a mix of 30% new and 70% second use barrels.

Chevillon Bourgogne Pinot Noir is the perfect introduction to this wonderful Domaine, sourced from two lieux-dits near the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges; Les Maladières and Petit Chaliot.

Other Reviews....
Moderate reduction is sufficient to suppress the underlying fruit though there is both good freshness and verve to the rich, generously proportioned and solidly concentrated middleweight flavors that deliver much better depth and persistence than is typical for the genre plus it will age. This could easily pass for a villages Nuits. Drink through 2025+.
