About this Item

2010 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles, Les Perrieres, & Les Vaucrains
6 (3 x 2) 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 2010

‘A spicy, cool, pure and wonderfully airy nose of purple and dark berry fruit gives way to rich, dense and seductively textured flavors that brim with dry extract that buffers the otherwise firm tannins on the mineral-inflected, long and classy finish. This is a focused and intense wine of style and grace that should amply reward long-term cellaring. Drink 2025+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 92-95/100 (Jan 2012)

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2010

‘This offers another slight step up in aromatic refinement with a spicy and overtly stony nose that combines all aspects of the fruit spectrum though the majority of it is red based. There is excellent precision to the rich, intense and mineral-driven flavors that are shaped by firm but ripe tannins and outstanding length on the linear and driving finish. This is impressive and should age well. Drink 2022+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91-93/100 (Jan 2012)

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2010

‘This is fantastically complex with a kaleidoscopically broad-ranging nose of markedly ripe dark berry fruit, earth and sauvage hints. The palate impression is classic Vaucrains with its rich, full-bodied, intense and overtly robust flavors that culminate in a hugely long yet quite finely balanced finish. This is indisputably a big wine but one that stops short of being forbidding as the copious dry extract buffers the explicitly firm supporting tannins. Still, this strikingly good effort is clearly going to require an extended cellar snooze. In a word, marvelous. Drink 2025+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 94/100 (Jan 2014)
