| ||Tasted by chablis28 on 4/16/2014 & rated 97 points: This was a total headturner and my WOTN amongst some big hitters like a '95 Haut Brion. This one btl is the poster btl for great Burgundy with significant blt age. It also continues to confirm why Robert Chevillon is one of my top 5 producer in all of Burgundy. This had amazing depth on a lovely evolved silky but fresh frame. (1162 views)|
| ||Tasted by jeff nowak on 8/19/2010: basically, the burgs were poster childs for parker's attitude toward them. all three were duds for one reason or another, but this was drinkable. however, it didn't display any real character. (1847 views)|
| ||Tasted by Charlie Carnes on 7/1/2008 & rated 95 points: Tasted with Scott Roddy, who graciously shared this bottle with me. Wow!, what a wonderful deep red hazy color. Very natural looking. On the nose a very sure mushroom smell. Not strong or in your face, more like walking through the forest and smelling a fresh patch of them just up ahead. Also hints of forest, maybe in Autumn. Nice strawberry and red fruit nose. The taste is rich and elegant. Incredible smoothness and a long finish. A very nuanced wine, I wish I had cases. Man, the Chevillons I have had lately have been very impressive. (2092 views)|
| ||Tasted by DChan on 3/28/2006: The mushroom medley in particular was a match made in heaven for the Chevillon, which is clearly in its window of maturity, albeit the early side of that window. Everything about this wine is redolent of forest floor, underbrush, and black soil and marries superbly with those mushrooms, as Burgundy always does. The color is still impressively deep, but on the palate the toughness of the Nuits briar patch has melted away, leaving a suave wine painted partially in primary flavors and partially in secondary ones. This one is clearly from a ripe year, but it is nowhere as muddled as many 1990's; what it may lack in ultimate focus and clarity is more than compensated for by the sheer stylishness of this juice. Lovely, typical Les Cailles from Chevillon; drink from now until 2015 at least. (3336 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.

Burgundy 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.
