Community Tasting Notes (average 92 pts. and median of 92 pts. in 40 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Frank Murray III on 11/23/2015: Enjoyed this. Seemed for my taste to be drinking well at this stage. Good acidity and medium weight, too. (1442 views)
 Tasted by rosenst1 on 11/16/2015 & rated 90 points: PnP. Good cork. Medium deep red with some clearing at the rim. Intriguing nose combining an airy quality with classic NSG iron and soil. On the palate medium weight, not as open and ready to drink as the last bottle but still eminently enjoyable. Long finish of classic NSG flavors. This can last 3-5 more years while more structured vintages age. Nice. (1129 views)
 Tasted by western on 11/3/2015 flawed bottle: Corked! (1233 views)
 Tasted by DougLee on 5/9/2015 & rated 92 points: My first introduction to this domaine several years ago and still a favorite. Popped and poured. Darker ruby hue. Nose of damp cellar, forest floor, anise, raspberry, violets, stone. Cool blue fruits on the smooth but concentrated palate with anise, blackberry, and ferrous notes thrown in. Glycerin-like quality to the palate contrasting with NSG rocks and iron. Driving acidity and serious tannins leading to a long finish of dark berry, iron flecks, and sweet grip. Keeps getting better and likely to do so for years. (2192 views)
 Tasted by galenico on 2/5/2015 & rated 89 points: Vino diverso dagli altri cru e altre annate già bevute di Chevillon, qui purtroppo l' annata difficile emerge, in un vino molto profumato da subito, invitante. Frutto rosso immerso nella terra e grande ariosità, ma la bocca non è a livello dei grandi Chevillon.
Manca la maturità fenolica in un vino che è un pochino scomposto tra il tannino ruvido, le note vegetali leggermente acerbe e un finale più dolce in cui il legno è ancora presente.
Bevuta piacevole, ma non ai vertici. (2314 views)
 Tasted by western on 12/29/2014 & rated 93 points: What a Vigneron! For 07 this wine is FANTASTIC and certainly needs at least another 5/10 yrs to reach it's straps. Young and full of vigor with all ingredients for a great future. Chevillon is the superstar of NSG �� (1971 views)
 Tasted by rosenst1 on 6/1/2014 & rated 89 points: Perfect cork; Medium red. Light airy nose of iron, spice. Smooth on the palate with no rough edges, almost delicate, something I never have described Chevillon NSGs as. With more air this does develop more intensity but still, drink up. (2603 views)
 Tasted by sunnylea57 on 5/4/2014 & rated 94 points: Ready for business. Shimmering ruby. Cherry, strawberry, rose, a bit of liquorice, leather, wet earth, and a zingy streak of minerals with prominent iron - like licking an iron pipe, which I discovered is far more pleasurable than one might imagine. Absolutely delicious. (2546 views)
 Tasted by mattyboy_ on 1/6/2014 & rated 93 points: Previous TN is a good descriptor. Hits its stride around the 1 hr mark - very pretty and one of the most elegant wines I've had from NSG. Well made wines from this vintage are already accessible and drinking well. (2520 views)
 Tasted by Edclr on 10/24/2013: Give it an hour and it is ready to go. Great balance, vg finish, nice mouthfeel. (2563 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 10/13/2013: Medium red center, perfectly clear. Red and black fruit, then increasing green tones dominated by fennel. Lighter weight with prominent but not offensive acidity. Mixed fruit, anise, earth, and with time, more flesh and cocoa. Very pretty wine for its clarity and vibrant nature rather than any profound concentration or great depth. It also wears its origins well. (2502 views)
 Tasted by Michael Davidson on 10/1/2013: Curious nose - blind I would've called it a Faury St Joseph. Blood and iron.

The palate is clearly pinot. Nice spiciness, medium weight but good concentration and length.

Really delicious. Not sure it's at peak, but certainly enjoyable now. (1883 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 9/21/2013 & rated 92 points: Opened and poured, this wine gave an excellent showing. On this occasion the wine seems more complete and expressive than prior experiences with this wine. This was tasted side by side with the 2007 Chevillon, "Les Saint-Georges". Both gave excellent showings with the "Les Saint-Georges" displaying a slightly more density and richness to the fruit. At this stage the "Les Cailles" shows a combination of youthful and maturing notes. This seems to at or around its peak. (1891 views)
 Tasted by pclin on 9/19/2013 & rated 92 points: Surprisingly shows some aging in color, light brick on the edge. Very good nose. Floral and intense. Notes of violet, wet earth, spice and strawberry. Slightly more red fruit dominant, fresh acidity level. Label indicated 13.5% alcohol with slight warmth at finish. Decent length and complexity. Approachable now with plenty of life ahead. Shows better balance on 2nd day, acidity calms down, smooth and round tannins comes through. Upgrade the score. Buy more? Maybe. 90-92 pts. (1753 views)
 Tasted by willthethrill on 7/21/2013 & rated 93 points: Lovely Nuit St. George. Soft sweet berries. I agree with the CT writer who says "remarkably graceful, elegant and polished for Nuits St. Georges."AB Vintners rec. (1691 views)
 Tasted by BobJohnson1 on 3/11/2013: Excellant, full, fruity and funky (in a really good way). Drinking well with a brief decant. (1849 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 2/17/2013: Even medium ruby. Reticent aromatics. Light to medium weight but certainly not slight. Beautiful poise and balance with a mixture of red and black fruit, licorice and earth tones with fine balancing acidity. Remarkably graceful, elegant and polished for Nuits St. Georges. "Seductive" is an adjective that hardly ever comes to mind with this commune but was a good descriptor here. No problem whatsoever in opening a bottle now, but its impeccable balance should easily carry it for another 7 to 10 years. (1929 views)
 Tasted by Edclr on 11/4/2012 & rated 92 points: Not yet ready, but still very pleasant after an hour open. Great acidity, beautifully balanced, fruit still a bit hidden but starting to evolve. I think these 07's are going to drink way before the 05-06-08-09's. This is already starting to show it's stuff. (2204 views)
 Tasted by DougLee on 9/12/2012 & rated 91 points: Popped and poured. Dark ruby. Nose of iron and soil with black raspberry and plum notes. Muscular structure of mineral and licorice laced with sleek black fruit and star anise. Potent acidity and stern tannins, but the fruit is ample and almost juicy on the long, ringing finish. Always a favorite, this wine will age for quite some years yet. (2378 views)
 Tasted by Merzbow on 6/21/2012 & rated 92 points: Tannic, somewhat closed, classic Cailles licorice and tar. Concentration belies the vintage, opened too soon. (2560 views)
 Tasted by Diane (LI) on 5/18/2012: I was anxious to check a 2007
Burg. I can't say I was disappointed, but there is something about this vintage that doesn't envelop me. A bit of reduction at first. The nose is bramble, tea, and pomegranate. The palate mirrors the nose. A nice finish. If low toned is an expression, then that is what I would use. (2006 views)
 Tasted by DougLee on 5/13/2012 & rated 91 points: Found more of this at a very reasonable price and went for it. Popped and poured. Dark ruby, almost purple. Nose took some swirling to unleash but eventually gave off scents of plum, raspberry, flint, earth, and brambles. Palate had smoky plum and sweet raspberry notes with spices and anise also. Acidity and tannins were ample but subsumed beneath primary fruit exuberance. Finish was long and marked by iron, mineral, and dark fruits. Perhaps beginning to shut down a bit but still a great drink. Hold on the rest of the stash for 3 to 5 years. (1968 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 5/8/2012 & rated 91 points: Opened and poured, this wine gives a similar showing to previous experiences with this wine. This does require about 30 minutes of airing to show its best. The wine begins somewhat lean and unbalanced. Airing brings harmony and completeness to the wine with complex aromatics and a lengthy finish. This will most likely require a few more years of bottle age to give its most compelling showing. (1933 views)
 Tasted by DougLee on 4/14/2012 & rated 92 points: Something about this wine made me go right out and purchase several more bottles after a first taste 2 months ago. Opened and aired in the glass for 30 mintues. Darker ruby hue. Fragrant, vinous nose of blueberry, raspberry, Pekoe, iodine, forest floor. Youthfully-charged layers of smoky black plum and raspberry fruit with a little bit of tartness on the palate mixed with iron, mineral, brambles, and oolong notes. Strong tannic structure smoothed by abundant primary fruit and balanced by energizing acidity. Finish was a recurring wave of rich, vivacious blue fruit gripped by earth and mineral, inviting another sip. Lots of capacity for aging but pretty darn delicious right now. (1846 views)
 Tasted by DougLee on 2/18/2012 & rated 92 points: Popped and poured, then consumed over about 3 hours. Bright ruby color. Nose of mulberry, black plum, dark spices, earth, forest floor. Muscular but almost juicy layers of black raspberry and smoky black plum on the palate with notes of game, brambles, and iron. Fresh and tart with acidity; tannins stern but nicely balanced by loads of primary fruit. Long, ringing finish of grippy dark fruit and minerals. Really excellent and full of life. Could age for years but drinking so well now it would be a shame to miss this exuberant phase. (1935 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 Cailles

On weinlagen-info


Vins de France (Office National Interprofessionnel des Vins ) | Pages Vins, Directory of French Winegrowers | French Wine (Wikipedia)


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.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
