"Bertrand Chevillon commented about the freshness of the 2014 vintage and the clear expression of the individual terroirs. I asked him if he had a particular favorite and he said that he couldn't pick between his "babies." Well, leave that to me. Readers will already be aware that I have long adored Bertrand and Denis Chevillon's wines and I was deeply impressed by his 2014s. I loved the purity and finesse that they have extracted here, perhaps better than either the 2012s and 2013s. Who made the best 2014s in the appellation of Nuits-Saint-Georges? I think the answer is pretty straightforward. Chevillon." - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Bertrand Chevillon called the 2014 “yet one more complicated and stressful vintage where a near-perfect September basically saved the harvest from what was a miserable summer. But it was a definite thrill ride as we went from a great spring with an excellent flowering to a very dry period where it hailed. The hail was dramatic as the hailstones were the size of golf balls! Thankfully the hail struck early enough that the vines were able to recover plus given the dry weather the damaged berries simply desiccated and fell off the bunches. Moreover the north wind was pretty much constant but particularly so in late August and September and this helped to keep the rot and mildew at bay. We chose to begin picking on the 11th of September and since the crop was relatively clean there really wasn’t much in the way of sorting required. Potential alcohols were in the 12 to 12.2% range which is perfectly fine for us. Yields were for the first time in several vintages comfortable and the berries had normal skin thicknesses which was an excellent plus for quality because often when you have bigger yields the skins aren’t especially thick. We did our usual vinification as there was no obvious reason not to. "As to wine quality I would put the 2014s between very good to excellent as they should be approachable young but there is no lack of ageability.” - Burghound
