 Tasted by Lorien on 7/17/2010 & rated 90 points: very nice. loads of complexity. earthly with minerals and more. way more interesting than the pretty generic Les Perrières which I had right after. this is really nice right now (6604 views)
 Tasted by The Wine Bum on 10/13/2004: Nuits St Georges les Pruliers 1996 Chevillon

Served with salmon ricotta ravioli in leek and girolles cream persilade sauce served with ginger lemon salmon

There’s something almost un-Nuits about this wine’s smoothness and poise. It has a wonderful creamy nose of Bonne Maman 4 fruits compote with a meaty terroir streak. The marvelous bouquet foretells the juicy raspberry rich palate which shows a satisfying undercurrent of subtle secondary savouriness and blood. The trademark 1996 acidity is present, but I’m glad to report acts not as a hindrance, but as a marvelous freshener and fruit shaperner. This is an absolutely delicious bottle and reinforces my respect for Chevillon who along with Gouges, year after year set the benchmark for Nuits St Georges. (2137 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.
