| ||Tasted by brian55 on 1/2/2015 & rated 92 points: Incredibly deep nose of black cherry, flowers and earth. Initially a bit lean on the palette but rounded out after an hour. Drink or hold (330 views)|
| ||Tasted by lepetitchateau on 3/5/2014 flawed bottle: Two corked bottles in a row! Not happy... (985 views)|
| ||Tasted by salil on 11/20/2012 & rated 92 points: Seasonal dinner (Seasonal, NYC): Great stuff. Powerful yet elegant; dark fruited and savoury with fantastic depth and balance, still a little tannic on the back end with the structure and the freshness suggesting this is still rather youthful, but what a pleasure to drink now.

| ||Tasted by placecarnot on 7/20/2010 & rated 94 points: PN based wine of the night in a room filled with many bottles. In perfect shape and ready to drink. (1755 views)|
| ||Tasted by drwine2001 on 7/27/2009: Chevillon Dinner, 1990-2002 (Lupa Restaurant, San Francisco): Most mature looking wine of the bunch. Here's the nose that jumped out of the glass and seduced most of the people at the table. Irresistibly complex Burgundy aromas, silky fruit with perfect balancing acidity, and some tannins still left to fade away. Gorgeous, complete example that is positively feminine in the context of the rest of these wines. My hands down favorite. (2284 views)|
| ||Tasted by The Wine Bum on 2/24/2005: Wow this is not nearly ready. |
The nose is fairly dumb but with a wonderful earthy hint. Really tightly wound but with a beautiful precision and elegance - not a burly Nuits character at all, especially considering its Les Cailles, which has a tendency to turn out pretty masculine wines. The palate is closed but the tannins are really refined and I'm blown away by its texture and balance, can't wait for the fruit to come out of its shell. I won't be going back to this for a couple of years at least. (2044 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.
