RATINGS

94Vinous / IWC

...very classy and well defined bouquet with pure black cherries, raspberry and light mineral aromas that unfurl from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, very focused with lovely grip and poised, slightly gritty in texture towards the finish but it boasts impressive length. Superb.

92-94The Wine Advocate

...pure and focused, a mixture of red and black fruit interlaced by cold stone, almost slate-like scents...palate is medium-bodied with grippy black fruit...

PRODUCER

Robert Chevillon

Robert Chevillon in Nuits St. Georges has 27 acres of vineyards, some with vines up to 75 years old. The domain’s eight premier crus are considered some of the finest in the region. The estate is run by Robert Chevillon and his sons Denis and Bertrand, and, like many vignerons in Burgundy, the family’s roots in winemaking go back at least to the 19th century. Domaine Chevillon is known for its policy of long, slow fermentation. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has called the estate “a splendid domaine with a marvelous palette of premier crus…(that are ) rich, classy, individual and more opulent than most.” Besides the red wines the estate makes a rare Nuits-Saint-George blanc.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges, Les Cailles

Les Cailles is 17.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. It is in the southern part of of the appellation. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. The vineyard is 245 – 260 meters in elevation with an excellent stony, sandy soil that drains well. Coates calls Les Cailles “subtle…with very seductive, composed, soft fruit flavors.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
