 Tasted by Mr T on 3/9/2015: I think I've finally had a Burg I liked....open pretty much from the get go and very pretty and open with licorice and some sweeter strawberry...very pretty (1076 views)
 Tasted by Charlie Carnes on 11/13/2014 flawed bottle: The ridiculous baby diaper and hints of band-aid, blew off after about an hour to reveal a really crappy Burgundy. Hideous. 2 out of 3 have been flawed. (1816 views)
 Tasted by mnh on 7/30/2014 & rated 95 points: Excellent. more open than expected (2247 views)
 Tasted by theharve on 11/23/2013 & rated 95 points: flat out great but enuf dusty tannins so won't try again f[til summer 14. I'd be interested in know who imported the flawed bottles. (3099 views)
 Tasted by WillersC on 9/27/2013 & rated 95 points: Young (Of course), but quite open and actually showing very good complexity at the moment. Very delicious with lots of everything, in perfect balance. Very nice! Spice, blue, black fruits, tons of earth,and ohh so long. Full on yet very feminine and delicate. (3349 views)
 Tasted by Collector1855 on 6/11/2013 & rated 92 points: My second bottle that had a wet cork. Upon opening the wine had distinctively mature color (light garnet with brick rim) and aromas (a bit bretty, earthy). I kept it one night vacuumed in the fridge. The next day the wine was better and tasted like a fully mature burgundy, still earthy in style but now with crisp acidity and enough red fruit present to balance its earthy side. Nice and complex. Still not sure this bottle is fully representative. (3940 views)
 Tasted by Collector1855 on 5/16/2013 flawed bottle: Corked. (3362 views)
 Tasted by Merzbow on 3/14/2013 & rated 94 points: Per prior note. Again, no Brett, this is a brilliant bottle that has shed some fat and is beginning to close down underneath a tannic shell. Love the classically Cailles, dark licorice and spicy nose. (3313 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 3/2/2013 flawed bottle: Another offender in a string of brett influenced 2009 Chevillon "Les Cailles". This bottle, unlike others, was undrinkable with the brett elements becoming more dominant with airing. Imported by Premier Cru. (2366 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 2/9/2013: Opened and poured, this bottle gave a better showing than three previously tasted bottles; however, it also displays some degree of brett that renders this wine disappointing. Imported by Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. (2265 views)
 Tasted by Charlie Carnes on 12/9/2012 flawed bottle: This started strongly poopy and bretty. No bottle funk here, the solid flaw stayed with the wine for two more days as I checked in on it often. Down the drain. (2405 views)
 Tasted by danstrings on 11/2/2012 & rated 92 points: Evvia with the gang -- Gorgeous glaceed fruit, clean and spicy fruit, blueberry, wet cave, minty milk chocolate notes. Candied clove and dried orange rind. Niiice. (2407 views)
 Tasted by mnh on 6/15/2012 & rated 94 points: One corked. Second excellent. Will go the distance. (1374 views)
 Tasted by Charlie Carnes on 5/16/2012 & rated 95 points: This is flat out amazing! Also, man I just think you cannot do much better than Chevillon in ripe/big years. The wine leans barely to the purple side in color, but still has the Cailles red traits that I so love where it counts, albeit dialed down a little. The best part of this wine is the mouthfeel and the delicious swallow. I know, the wine is only three and shows its young age, but if you have a few of these give one a whirl. Reminds me some of the Kutch McDougal Ranch 2009... go figure. (3197 views)
 Tasted by Merzbow on 4/14/2012 & rated 94 points: 2009 Nuits-St-George from Chevillon, Grivot, etc. (Beltamo's Wines and Spirits, Menlo Park, CA): Elegant dark chocolate nose, then Darth Vader appears and starts blowing up planets. Dark, black evil Nuits melange of tar, violets, sap, very tannic, endless finish. I love this.

I'm pretty sure people who think they are finding Brett in 2009 Chevillon are instead finding a touch of bottle stink that quickly blows off. There is no friggen' Brett here, folks. (3314 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 4/14/2012: This wine has been tasted on two occasions and from three bottles. First tasted on 2/17/12, the wine was consumed with dinner allowing a couple of hours to evaluate the wine. More recently, this was tasted as part of an afternoon tasting (the wine was tasted from two bottles). Aromatically, this wine shows a funky element (most likely brett) that fails to dissipate over time. The first experience with this wine showed a bottle that with extended airing hinted at its potential but failed to give satisfactory development. More recently, the wine (tasted from two bottles) confirmed the initial impression. Hopefully this wine can overcome the off-putting (to some) elements and give a more harmonious showing.

 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 2/11/2012 & rated 91 points: 2009 Robert Chevillons (Vin Vino Wine, Palo Alto, California): Very dark ruby color; brett, tart cherry, green herb, tart raspberry nose; tight, brett, tart cherry, green herb, sous bois, mineral palate; needs 9-plus years; medium-plus finish 91+ points (2569 views)
 Tasted by llink on 2/10/2012: A little funk on the nose, with some sweat and copious black fruits. Big palate with dark fruit flavors and a nice balancing structure. Medium finish where you pick up some oak tannin. Very "classic" for a 2009 and will be great if the funk does not continue to develop and bloom. (2829 views)

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Producer website

The adventure started with Symphorien Chevillon who started working approximately thirty acres of vines at Nuits-Saint-Georges in his own name.
Then, Eugène-François (around 1914), following 2 years of military service and 5 years of war, took over the domain and bought a few plots as Premier Cru.
In 1946, the vines were taken over by the 2 sons (they separated later on).
Maurice bought 2 stills (39) and (46) and became an itinerant distiller. He continued to expand the Domain by buying new plots of Premier Cru.

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Vins de France (Office National Interprofessionnel des Vins ) | Pages Vins, Directory of French Winegrowers | French Wine (Wikipedia)


Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
