Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 91.5 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 2 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by coremill on 5/23/2015 & rated 92 points: Decanted off sediment and served immediately. Sweet red cherries, lots of mushroom and sous-bois character, some earth and beef blood. High acidity at first but the fruit unfurls with air. Complete and long but not super-concentrated, with unresolved tannins remaing that are just a touch rustic but not drying and that smooth out with food. Not especially powerful, more elegant and staley in character everything is nicely integrated. No reason to wait here, this is a lovely aged Burgundy. (227 views)
 Tasted by mark.zinner on 5/27/2012 & rated 91 points: Drunk with Barbara & Betsy & Ronnie on my brief stay in SF. This opened a little funky and had a dusty texture on the palate. Within 20 minutes it pulled itself together with a nice meaty, beefy cherry flavor, sous bois, earthy mushroomy nose ever evolving. Resolved tannins and drinking perfectly. A delightful wine.

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.
