Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 90.7 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by dzop on 5/19/2015 & rated 89 points: The third of a lot of three 1990 and 1991 Chevilons, each of which has been mysteriously mediocre despite immaculate bottles and corks. This is no different; it's a fine, sturdy, red fruited and spicy burg, but it's completely anonymous. Fine wine, but it's not remotely what it should be. Oddly youthful. Unbranded cork. Hmm.

 Tasted by Winetex on 1/30/2010 & rated 90 points: Dark ruby color with light sediment; This bottle seemed rather over but after decanting and air time finally opened up a bit. Definitely not in the same class as the previous bottle. (2048 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 7/27/2009: Chevillon Dinner, 1990-2002 (Lupa Restaurant, San Francisco): Similar color as the '90 Vaucrains. As with the pair of '96s, this was a tad less blockish than the Vaucrains, which made the texture more pleasing. Still pretty big and ripe, but seems less over the top than its vintage mate.

 Tasted by jamiekutch on 3/13/2006: This was slightly oxidized on the get-go. Had a stenchy sock, football lockeroom profile that was difficult to get past. None the less, I braved a sip and found the fruit to be dull and dry. (2626 views)
 Tasted by lbosche on 5/6/2000: Awesome wine, great fruit. Consumed long ago but stands out in my mind. (2534 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.

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.
