Community Tasting Notes (average 75 pts. and median of 75 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by brooklynguy on 1/13/2013: Burgundy Wine Club Dinner 2013 (The Breslin, NYC): After drinking 94 Les Saint Georges and Vaucrains, this wine showed its individuality quite clearly. A pretty wine, red fruits and a jewel-like clarity. More feminine, showcasing finesse and delicacy in aromatics and texture. Lovely wine. Seems to be at the apex, was the consensus, perhaps not a lot of point in waiting too long on this wine. (2015 views)
 Tasted by AndrewSGHall on 11/3/2007: Two of the previous bottles from this lot were undrinkable at best, so I had little hope for this bottle. Sometimes you win the lottery. Consistent colour with no sign of bricking. Lovely nose of strawberry, hay and Brie. Good acids, firm finish and good balance. Uncoiled a bit with some flesh and persistence. Delicious stuff. Held for a good 45 minutes or so and we finished it. (1099 views)
 Tasted by AndrewSGHall on 8/29/2006: Dead thing nose. Coarse and baked on the palate. Undrinkable - more than just old, it was ruined. (1179 views)
 Tasted by psmith on 3/9/2006 & rated 75 points: Some pretty strawberry jam and mushroom notes under a layer of over-the-hill lemon pledge. Flabby and old on the palate followed by coarse, drying tannins. Was probably not bad at some point, but not enjoyable now. (1290 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.
