2019 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges "Vieilles Vignes" Rouge, Burgundy, France

Aromas of raspberries, small red berries, and sweet soil tones introduce Chevillon's excellent Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes, a medium-bodied, supple and expressive wine with an open-knit core of succulent fruit and fine-grained structuring tannins.



Similarly to Domaine Henry Gouges, Domaine Chevillon owns an incredible lineup of 8 old-vines Premier Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges and the total area under vines is almost 13 hectares. They produce attractive, fruit forward wines that drink well relatively young but also have long aging potential. The wine making is traditional, with 100% destemming, cold maceration followed by slow fermentation, and spend 18 months in oak, 25-30% of it new (for the premiere crus). The final result is structured, fruity, elegant, fine and complex wines, made for long aging but also accessible relatively early.


Domaine Robert Chevillon story starts in the beginning of the 20th Century by Symphorien Chevillon who started working approximately thirty acres of vines at Nuits-Saint-Georges in his own name. The domaine has developed ever since, each generation adding additional Premier Cru vineyards to the domaine portfolio, the most significant was Robert Chevillon since the early 1960s. In 1990 his two sons Denis and Bertrand (5thgeneration of the Chevillon family) joined their father at the domaine which carries his name and since Robert’s retirement in 2003 they manage the domaine.
