Domaine Robert Chevillon Description

The stunning collection of premier cru and old-vine vineyards held by the two Chevillon brothers would make any Pinot Noir grower jealous. Their innate ability to carefully tend the vines and master the difficult Burgundian conditions provides ripe, healthy clusters of grapes year after year.  Taste through the barrels of Chevillon post-harvest and it doesn't matter what happened the year before, almost as if by miracle, the wines show class and character and each terroir has its distinct idiosyncrasies.  It is le vrai Pinot chez Chevillon.

Brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon are the fifth generation managers of this property in Nuits- Saint-Georges, which means they work the vines and make the wines.  Their father Robert, for whom the domaine is named, is still active as well.  Both brothers bring passion, experience, a tireless work ethic, and intensity to their work at the domaine.  Tasting through their palate of Nuits- Saint-Georges is a venerable tour of the appellation.  Their Passetoutgrain, a blend of Pinot and Gamay, is a worthy introduction and their rare (two barrels made) Nuits-Saint-Georges Blanc made from the “Pinot Gouges” is an exotic treasure that ages just as long as the domaine’s fabled reds.  And their Bourgogne Aligoté, Bourgogne Chardonnay and Bourgogne Rouge are grown and vinified with the same care as their premier crus.  It shows.  

Wine Advocate: 91-93 Points

Wafting from the glass with notions of cassis, dark chocolate, plums, spices and peonies, the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with a rich core of concentrated fruit, lively acids and a penetrating finish.

Burghound: 91-93 Points

A vague touch of wood is present on the ripe and exuberantly fresh aromas of poached plum, dark currant and anise. The sleeker and more mineral-driven medium weight flavors possess a lovely sense of underlying tension, all wrapped in a compact, firm and built-to-age finale. This is also excellent and stylistically, it is a mix of Nuits and Vosne.

Vinous: 89-91 Points

The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru has an attractive bouquet with pure black cherry and raspberry scents entwined with violet petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm grip on the entry, just a little confit-like towards the finish but there is plenty of freshness. It just needs to loosen up a bit by the time of bottling.
