2020 Robert Chevillon Bourgogne Rouge
SKU: 2020-CHEVI-BOURRegular price $69.95
Brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon are the fifth generation managers of this property in Nuits- Saint-Georges. Their father Robert, for whom the domaine is named, is still active as well. The stunning collection of premier cru and old-vine vineyards held by the two Chevillon brothers would make any Pinot Noir grower jealous. Their innate ability to carefully tend the vines provides ripe, healthy clusters of grapes year after year.
'A subtle but not imperceptible dollop of wood surrounds the super-fresh aromas of red and blue pinot fruit that is trimmed in hints of earth and underbrush. There is outstandingly density to the appealingly textured middle weight flavors that terminate in a robust and powerful but not really rustic finale. This is a terrific Bourgogne.' (87-90 points)
