91-94Stephen Tanzer

...Refined aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, minerals and violet. Subtle, suave and fine-grained, with dark berry and pungent mineral flavors coming across as utterly seamless yet vigorous...wonderfully perfumed, gripping and long.

...spicy, elegant and ultra-pure nose of layered red currant, cherry, violet and warm earth aromas. The delicious, concentrated and sleekly muscular flavors possess outstanding mid-palate concentration before terminating in a balanced and strikingly long finish. The old vine sap is very much in evidence as it pushes the otherwise firm tannins to the background and imparts a velvety feel.

90+ The Wine Advocate

...slightly subdued bouquet, sultry dark cherries mixed with wild hedgerow and Earl Grey aromas... The palate is better with supple red fruit...leafy, tertiary finish...easy-going...

...Lightish mildly glacé strawberry nose. Very sweet and fruity. Deceptively charming already. Tastes as though a lot of work went into making this wine so approachable. Admirably persistent. It really does fan out on the finish, which is where it shows its class.


Domaine 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.

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.”


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.
