Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2017

"As is virtually always the case, this is more aromatically elegant and spicier and in 2017 the nose of essence of raspberry, cherry, violet and soft herbal tea notes is also notably spicier. There is excellent richness and a highly beguiling vibrancy to the well-detailed and stony medium-bodied flavors that deliver a lovely combination of punch and finesse on the sneaky long finish. In sum, this beautifully well-balanced effort is Zen-like." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Chaignots” Premier Cru 2017

"The proximity to the southern side of Vosne is in evidence as here the expressive nose of pure red and dark berry scents cut with warm earth is quite spicy. In the same fashion as the nose, there is a lovely texture to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence both fine depth and length. I like the balance and there is enough stuffing that this could be approached early but it should also have no trouble amply repay mid-term cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Perrières” Premier Cru 2017

"This is at once elegant and earthy with its mix of red cherry, violet, anise and wisp of forest floor. There is a bit more volume to the vibrant, pure and seductive medium-bodied flavors that aren't quite as powerful but even longer on the firmly structured and dusty finish. Despite the seductive mid-palate, the imposing tannic spine makes it clear that this is going to need at least some cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2017

"A distinctly earthy and somewhat somber nose possess notes of underbrush, the sauvage, dark currant and plum. The rich, concentrated and powerful medium weight flavors flesh both good minerality and excellent complexity on the solidly long and balanced if overtly rustic and very firm finish. This is a big wine in the context of the vintage and very Nuits in character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Roncières” Premier Cru 2017

"Moderate wood sets off a spicy array that includes plum, violet and a suggestion of lavender. The beautifully vibrant middle weight flavors possess an attractive mouthfeel thanks mainly to the notably fine grained tannins shaping the impressively complex and persistent finish. The wood expressed by the nose does resurface though my sense is that it will ultimately be successfully integrated." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les St. Georges” Preimer Cru 2017

"This is also quite spicy with a pretty and broad-ranging combination of red cherry, plum and violet aromas that are cut with warm earth hints. The big-bodied flavors possess a bit more minerality as well as more size, weight and evident power before culminating in a racy yet seductive finish that is very clearly built to age. This tautly muscular effort manages to be serious yet refined." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Vaucrains” Premier Cru 2017

"Relatively generous wood fights a bit with the otherwise cool and pure aromas of extract of cassis, plum, humus, earth and suggestions of the sauvage. As is usually the case chez Chevillon, this is a very powerful wine with imposing size and weight with fine mid-palate density thanks to the abundant dry extract that also helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine that really emerges on the beautifully long finale." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Vieilles Vignes” Village 2017

"A discreet application of wood sets off a beautifully fresh and earthy array of red and dark currant scents. The sleek, vibrant and utterly delicious medium weight flavors exhibit a trace of minerality on the balanced, refreshing and lingering finish. This youthfully austere effort is a relatively refined Nuits villages that should drink reasonably well young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
