About Domaine Robert Chevillon
For the longest time, the Chevillons were the equivalent of sharecroppers, farming vines they didn't own and selling the fruit to local négociants. Today, Domaine Robert Chevillon is one of the top two producers in Nuits-Saint-Georges, along with Henri Gouges.
92-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2014
Black cherry and rich chocolatey oak on the nose. Darker in fruit character than the Les Saint-Georges, showing a distinctly musky wildness to its flavors of black raspberry and bitter chocolate. Hugely ripe and sweet but nicely leavened by ripe, harmonious acidity. Finishes saline and soil-driven, with serious but sweet tannins to support a graceful evolution in bottle. I marginally prefer the Saint-Georges and Cailles today for their higher-pitched aromatics but this is a big boy.
