Deeper register aromas of earthy but spicy dark berry fruits and a touch of animale leads to serious, dense and relatively powerful flavors that culminate in a dusty, mouth coating and admirably persistent finish.

Very deep crimson. Full, rich, sweet and smooth and lots of pleasure. Honestly, why not buy Robert Chevillon every year?


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges, Aux Chaignots

Aux Chaignots is a 13-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Nuits-Saints-Georges appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote-de-Nuits. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. Aux Chaignots is in the northern part of the appellation, where the soil is limestone mixed with gravel. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that the wines from these northern Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Crus are “rich, full and elegant.”


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.
