Robert Chevillon, Burgundy 2016

We are pleased to be a be able to offer Domaine Robert Chevillon from the outstanding 2016 vintage. As the reviews and comments reinforce - this is one of the best Domaines in Burgundy & easily our favourite Red Burgundy producer. Chez Chevillon has the year on year consistency that only the best sites and the oldest vines produce.

"I just loved these wines. In my opinion, Chevillon has become the leading grower in Nuits-Saint-Georges with a raft of superlative wines that would get more attention if cognoscenti were not so obsessed about other appellations blessed with grand crus. These wines come highly recommended."
— Neal Martin,

"As I have noted before, Chevillon rarely misses; indeed I would describe the domaine as one of the most consistent in all of Burgundy. Thus it won't surprise readers to see me extol the quality of the domaine's 2016s are they are genuinely exceptional across the board. Moreover, because Nuits in the Côte de Nuits is like Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, meaning it gets less respect than it deserves, the Chevillon wines remain relative bargains and thus they are very much worth considering."

"According to Bertrand Chevillon, this estate lost 50% to 80% of its normal volume to frost in 2016, depending on the cru, with yields typically ranging from 10 to 20 hectoliters per hectare. Mildew was not an issue, he said. The harvest took place between September 24 and October 2, and the estate’s trio of top crus (Les Cailles, Les Vaucrains and Les Saint-Georges) came in with potential alcohol levels between 12.5% and 13.2%. Chevillon destemmed all of the fruit, as always, noting that “vinifying with whole clusters would change our style.” The wines stood out in January for their sappy energy and purity. Chevillon describes his ‘16s as “very rich, concentrated, classic vins de garde.”
— Stephen Tanzer, January 2018
