About this Item

2009 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles, Les Perrieres, & Les Vaucrains
5 (5 x 1) 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

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles 2009

‘The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les Cailles bursts from the glass with an exciting melange of smoky dark fruit, new leather, tar and licorice. It is another implosive, young wine that will require considerable patience. The energy and verve both bode well for the future. Exotic spices and dark fruit emerge even more fully as the wine fleshes out on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100 (Apr 2012)

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2009

‘The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les Perrieres possesses gorgeous purity and integrity from start to finish. Exotic hints of allspice, tar, smoke and camphor add elements of darkness to the Perrieres. This is an especially brooding, inward wine that will require considerable bottle age to soften, even if occasional elements of sweetness and accessibility suggest I may be erring on the side of caution. The Perrieres has maintained great freshness and overall energy. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100 (Apr 2012)

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2009

‘The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les Vaucrains is fascinating to taste after Les St. Georges. In 2010 the Vaucrains is more finessed and elegant than the St. Georges, but in 2009 those rules are reversed, as it is the Vaucrains that comes across as far more imposing, inward and structured. Today the Vaucrauins is implosive and seems to be holding back much of its potential. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame the fruit through to the tense, wiry finish. The Vaucrains needs to be buried in a deep, cold cellar for several years, perhaps considerably longer, although I am optimist by nature. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94+/100 (Apr 2012)
