About this Item

Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrières, 2002
3 (1 x 3) 750ml

Domaine Robert Chevillon produces high-end Pinot Noirs in Nuit-Saint-Georges, Burgundy. The estate has been passed down through the Chevillon family since the turn of the 20th century and it now holds 13 hectares, including parcels in 8 Premier Cru Nuit-Saint-Georges sites. Several of Robert Chevillon’s plots were in vineyards that were upgraded to Premier Cru status. This had a large impact on the success of the domaine and their wines and reputation. Rather than continue selling to négociants, Robert was the first in his family to domaine-bottle his wines. He ran the family estate until 2003 when he retired; passing the management and winemaking on to his sons. The domaine is known for its older vines in their Les Cailles, Les Vaucrains and Les Saint-Georges vineyard plots. Some are older than 75 years old.

Critics Ratings

‘More subtle than Chaignots. Thick and sweet. Very slightly furry on the palate, but certainly big impact.’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Jan 2004)

‘An assortment of candied cherries explode from the glass of the 2002 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Perrieres. This seductive wine’s character is drenched in black cherry syrup, rocks, and earth. Medium-bodied, it has outstanding depth, concentration, and a long, expressive finish that reveals copious quantities of ripe tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.’ - Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate, 91-93/100 (Jun 2004)
