Domaine Robert Chevillon Description

The track record of the Chevillon wines in the cellar is one of the most remarkable aspects of this storied domaine.  We regularly have the good fortune to taste back through the past three decades of vintages of all the various premier crus and the wines always more than convincing—they are amongst Burgundy’s very best.  In fact, I have often been more disappointed with grand cru bottlings than I am with the top-tier Chevillon premier crus.  Indeed, Nuits-Saint-Georges does not officially have any grand cru vineyards, but we are convinced that Cailles, Vaucrains and Les Saint-Georges are firmly grand cru quality.  This decision is currently in the hands of the appellation authorities but it is almost better if the status quo doesn’t change–that way we are assured to get grand cru quality at a premier cru price!

The name Les Perrières originates from one of the original uses of the land, a place where stones could be found, a kind of quarry

Wine Advocate: 93-95 Points

Deep and seamless, the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles mingles aromas of cherry and berry fruit with hints of rose petals, orange rind, sweet spices and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, suave and velvety, with terrific concentration, fine tannins and lively acids, it's the most elegant wine in the range.

Vinous: 90-92 Points

The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Perrières 1er Cru has an intriguing bouquet with pressed iris flowers, a slightly more "gourmand" nose that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is tight, a little chewy on the entry, perhaps the Chaignots showing a little more precision and tension at the moment.

 

Burghound: 90-93 Points

Coulis-like aromas include those of plum, black cherry, soft spice and cool earth nuances. The rich but exceptionally punchy medium weight flavors are not quite as refined but they're more powerful while exhibiting excellent length on the overtly austere and rustic finale.
