From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The Domaine was started by Symphonien Chevillon in the late 19th century with a small plot (3/4 acres) which he farmed after finishing his daily work for other vignerons. Symphonien's son took over the Domaine upon his father's death and began to acquire small parcels of Nuits St. Georges premier cru. The Domaine is now 31 acres and is managed by Robert Chevillon, great great nephew of Symphonien.
Domaine Chevillon is often said to be the greatest Domaine in Nuits Saint Georges. With a focused core of Pinot fruit, the wines are always balanced, never over-oaked or over-chapitalized. Chevillon's Burgundies cellar well, but in their youth they show elegant berry and earth perfume, and are best paired with game dishes, roasted birds such as quail and duck, and strong aromatic cheeses.

"Fairly deep red. Sweet fruity nose, full of charm, displaying ripe red fruits. Rich, suave attack, but then the tannins kick in on the mid-palate. This may lack finesse but it has abundant fruit and plenty of Nuits muscle without being too extracted. Good length."(2/2016)

"The earlier completion of the malo for the villages this year at Domaine Chevillon has the wine absolutely singing at the time of my visit. The superb nose offers up scents of red and black cherries, cocoa, a touch of nutskin, a lovely base of soil and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and quite soil-driven in personality, with a lovely core, fine length and grip and a very refined, suavely-tannic finish. A lovely old vine cuvée. Drink between 2019-2045."(12/2015)
