Tuesday evening a small group sat down to taste throught the recently arrived 2017's from Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux.

James Suckling says of the 2017 vintage "If I was to describe the general character of the 2017 pinot noir wines it is a vintage with plenty of fragrance, attractive fruit, lacy tannins, reasonably strong terroir character, and an overall air of transparency and approachability."

Vinous said "The 2017 reds are very good, often excellent, and from time to time, bloody awesome. The benign growing season predicates one of the most consistent vintages I can remember in 20 years of visiting Burgundy. There was nothing to trip winemakers up, no curveballs to send them off course, apart from controlling vigour in parcels affected by the previous season's frost where vines tried to compensate for the preceding year's shortfall. Consequently, this is not a season where I can really single out one appellation's superiority. They all have something to offer. However, I want to mention Nuits Saint-Georges, since it does not receive its fair share of recognition. The appellation might not gleam with Grand Crus; however, it is home to propitious terroir and prices are often cheaper compared to other appellations."
 
It is a vintage for Burgundy lovers.

I have added my tasting notes for all of the wines below.

Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux was created in 1887 by Eugène-François Chevillon, who inherited from his father Symphorien Chevillon some parcels of vines. He was succeeded by Eugene Chevillon and then in 1946 by his two sons, Georges and Maurice. In 1947, Domaine Georges Chevillon grew with the acquisition of Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru "Les St-Georges". In 2000, their granddaughter Claire and her husband Philippe Chezeaux her husband renamed the domaine Chevillon-Chezaux. The husband and wife are well connected. Claire is a cousin of the owners of Domaine Robert Chevillon and Philippe is the brother of Jerome from Domaine Jerome Chezeaux, who is also in our portfolio.

Normally we would offer the wines at a 15% Discount. For this week you can choose the wines you want at a 25% Discount.

Coteaux Bourguignons 2017
Normally $35.95
Special $26.95
Case of 12 Bottles $323.50
98 bottles available

chevillon-chezeaux coteaux bourguignons label A most interesting bottling. This is 100% Gamay from Vosne-Romanee and Nuits-St-Georges! The vine age is an incredible 60 years making for a wonderful drink. Past vintages have been extremely popular. Check out the price!

Darren Harris: Purple-garnet. Aromatic nose. The palate is crisp and fresh with blood orange and spice notes. Tight and zippy with an elegant balance. 100% Gammay from Champs d'Argent in Vosne-Romanee and Croix Blanche and Petit Chaliot in Nuits-St-Georges.
Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Maladieres 2017
Normally $46.50
Special $34.95
Case of 12 Bottles $419.40
56 bottles available
Chevillon-Chezeaux Maladieres label A single site Bourgogne from vines in Nuits-St-Georges. Exhibits strawberry, cherry and violet with a hint of sous bois and supple tannins to finish.

Darren Harris: Deeper in colour than the Coteaux Bourguignons. Floral nose with violets and white flowers with some refreshing citric elements. Dark fruits - cherries in particular. Textured and mouthfilling, finishing with a touch of tannins which adds shape. A lovely example of Bourgogne from this single site in Nuits-St-Georges. 

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Crots 2017  
Normally $139.50
Special $104.95
12 bottles available

Chevillon-Chezeaux NSG Crots label Located just south of the village. Richer, darker, deeper fruit flavours. Spice, plum, earth, violets. From a tiny 0.24 hectare holding.

Darren Harris: Elegance personified. The 2017 Les Crots is fine, long and detailed. A little less spice than Les Bousselots with red fruits that are aromatic and floral. Not heavy on the palate but very stylish with a lovely acid/tannin balance. I like this a lot.

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Champs-Perdrix 2017 
Normally $139.50
Special $104.95
9 bottles available
Chevillon-Chezeaux NSG Champs perdrix label Aux Champs Perdrix is a small vineyard at the Vosne-Romanee end of Nuits-St-Georges. The style is fine and elegant. There are not many owners of this Premier Cru. Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux own just 0.36 hectares.

Darren Harris: A standout amongst the 2017's. Aux Champs-Perdrix is always stylish and refined. The 2017 manages to combine that with a delightful explosion of interesting flavours - red-black fruits, minerals, liquorice and flowers. The wine is quite juicy (somewhat like 2016) and light on its feet. Stylish, poised and textured. This is a great wine in 2017.

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots 2017 
Normally $139.50
Special $104.95
35 bottles available
Chevillon-Chezeaux Bousselots label Les Bousselots is located at the northern end of Nuits-St-Georges close to Vosne-Romanee. Here the wines tend to display more perfume and elegance - a theoretical combination of Nuits and Vosne. The domaine's holdings are just 0.36 hectares.

Darren Harris: From the Vosne-Romanee end of Nuits-St-Georges. Red, spicy fruit, fresh and quite juicy. Under notes of earth and flowers. Chevillon-Chezeaux's Bousselots is always textured in the mouth and the 2017 is no exception. Combines elements of Nuits and Vosne very successfully.
Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Porets 2017 
Normally $150.50
Special $112.95
32 bottles available
Chevillon-Chezeaux NSG Porets label 2 A tiny holding of 0.23 hectares. Located close to Les St-Georges this vineyard is powerful and structured with wild aromatics and often a note of liquorice.
Darren Harris: Deep, vibrant red. Red cherries with a citric tartness that is very appealing, along with minerals and a touch of anise. A little wildness. Quite savoury. The palate fans out on the finish and the wine is very persistent. A little oak in support. Very focussed and layered for the vintage. 
Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les St-Georges 2017 
Normally $221.50
Special $165.95
1500ml Magnum Normally $443.00
Special $332.00
22 bottles and 9 Magnums available
Chevillon-Chezeaux Les St Georges Nuits-St-George's most famous vineyard and often discussed as a candidate for elevation to Grand Cru. The domaine owns 0.45 hectares producing a complex and detailed wine from 70 year old vines.

Darren Harris: Darker and denser than the all the preceding wines. Richer and fuller on the nose with dark plums and cherries, chocolate and a good dose of spice. The wine opens in the mouth and is palate coating with a silky texture and very refined tannins. Serious stuff! A complete Nuits-St-Georges from the commune's greatest vineyard. 

Vosne-Romanee 2017
Normally $117.50
Special $87.95
Case of 12 Bottles $987.00
24 bottles available

Chevillon-Chezeaux Vosne Label Actually a single vineyard wine that could be labelled La Croix Blanche should the domaine wish to. They own 0.30 hectares of 55 year old vines producing a wine of style that is always delicious and very popular. Where else can you buy Vosne-Romanee at this sort of price?

Darren Harris: 100% from the lieu-dit of La Croix Blanche. Aromatic and fresh with spicy red fruit, violets and a some of the citric acidity that runs through many of the 2017's. Medium weight with good length. A classic Vosne-Romanee Villages.

Burgundy Intracacies Dinner header

Understanding the intricacies of Burgundy Dinner
Thursday 26 September 2019 at Yagiz

Discover your inner Burgundy...
 
How do you learn more about Burgundy? Reading is informative and a trip to the vineyards can be very constructive. But nothing is better than tasting and comparing wines and talking about them with like minded, enthusiastic wine lovers.

Our Understanding the intricacies of Burgundy Dinner is going to do just that.

We have assembled 7 Pairs of wines. Each Pair has everything in common - well, except for one variable. 

The difference might be maker, vintage, vineyard or level. But apart from that one element the wines are fundamentally the same - at least on the surface.

We will taste and compare each Pair of wines and discuss what makes the wines different. It should be a great exercise and I am sure will increase everyone's understanding of the intricacies of Burgundy. We'll do it over dinner at Yagiz where the food will be a great counterpoint to the wine.

School was never this much fun!
