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.

The domaine currently owns 8.61 hectares spread over 14 different appellations. 

The domaine's style is at the elegant end producing wines with superb aromatics and, for Nuits-St-Georges, moderate tannins. Balance and drinkability are the keynotes here.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Maladieres 2016
Normally $44.50
Special $33.35
Case of 12 Bottles $399.95
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: Bright red with a hint of purple. More weight on the nose than the Coteaux Bourguignons. Dark cherry, spice, flowers, earth and perhaps a little oak. It is on the palate that this wine shows its class. It is deeply flavoured with all the fruits and florals above with a touch of graphite. I like the tannin on the finish - it plays a great supporting role without trying to be the star. There is considerable depth for a wine of this level, a reflection of the superior site in Nuits-St-Georges. This wine is chasing on the tails of many Villages wines and overtaking quite a few. There's a lot of bang and serious pleasure for your dollar here. 

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Crots 2016  
Normally $133.95
Special $99.95
6 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: I always find Les Crots to be the most elegant of the Nuits 1er Crus here. The 2016 has lifted fruit with cherry and plum. Aromatic and floral. The palate is very fine for Nuits-St-Georges showing juicy 2016 fruit coating fine grained tannins. There is a real sense of elegance here that makes the wine very appealing right now.

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: A small premier cru vineyard just to the south of the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges produced this smoothly textured wine. With soft tannins and perfumed fruit, this gently extracted wine is almost ready to drink. Just wait until 2020. 89 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Champs-Perdrix 2016 
Normally $133.95
Special $99.95
10 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: Deep red. Compared to the prior wines the Champs Perdrix is a little closed today. It is located high at the Vosne end with very little topsoil. As Jasper Morris says the wine is always "fine boned". Chevillon-Chezeaux own half of the total vineyard area of 0.73 hectares. The wine displays mineral and fruit notes, with bright earth on the nose. The palate is cherries and plums with a significant mineral streak. Less exuberant than the other wines but maybe just needs a little more time to open up.

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: From one of the smallest of the Nuits-Saint-Georges premier cru vineyards, this wine has good structure and tense tannins even after three years. That suggests aging potential, as the structure is coming together with the juicy red-berry fruits. Wait for this wine until 2022. 92 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots 2016 
Normally$133.95
Special $99.95
6 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: Deep red. Located at the Vosne end of the commune. Gorgeous nose with an amalgam of red and black fruit (cherry pits), fresh earth and dusty wood spices and a distinct floral note (violets). Concentrated with wonderful mouthfeel, a silky texture and a fine, long peacock's tail finish. Like many northern Nuits wines this is something of a combination of Nuits and Vosne and is very classy.

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: This ripe wine is developing well. The tannins are softening into the warm black fruits. leaving a modicum of freshness. The wine has a good future, and will be ready from 2022.  92 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Porets 2016 
Normally $144.50
Special $108.00
20 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: Located south of the village near Les St Georges. Dark red. Broader, wilder aromatics than the previous wines. The nose suggests liquorice mixed with some dark fruit sensations. The soil is gravelly and this adds depth and power. The tannins are quite defined but are fine and well coated by the fresh, vibrant 2016 fruit. Like all good 2016's there is plenty to make the wine very drinkable now but this cuvee really demands some time in the cellar. 

Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: Among the southern vineyards of appellation, this premier cru makes wines with plenty of rich, juicy fruits. With the wood aging now well in balance, the red fruits tamed and the structure in a supporting role, the wine is full and on its way to maturity. Drink from 2022. 92 Points

Vosne-Romanee 2016 
Normally $127.95
Special $95.95
12 bottles available
Chevillon-Chezeaux Vosne Label Darren Harris: 100% from the lieu-dit of La Croix Blanche. Deep red colour. Nose of spicy red fruits and flowers, open and aromatic. Unmistakably Vosne-Romanee. The palate is medium bodied with pristine, fleshy, juicy fruit typical of 2016. Just the right level of extract to produce a fine, balanced Vosne. Finishes with more spice and minerals and fine grained tannins. A delight at this level.

NSD 2016 Dinner Yagiz
The Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges Dinner. 12 Different Vineyards from 2016. Monday 3 February at Yagiz 
A trek throught the Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges
 
We often speak about the different sections of Nuits-St-Georges and how distinct they are. With no Grand Crus (at least for the moment) the commune relies on 41 Premier Crus for its reputation. 
 
These vineyards fall into three sectors. At the far south, in Premeaux-Prissey, are ten Premier Crus. In my opinion these are in general the least interesting wines. They can be lean and tannic and much care is required to ensure the wines remain balanced.
 
The second sector is just south of the village of Nuits-St-Georges. The wines produced here are rich and powerful. They are naturally tannic but have the fruit weight to ensure balance is not an issue. Les St-Georges and Vaucrains have applied for elevation to Grand Cru status. In good vintages there is a valid argument. Time will tell.
 
At the far north on the Vosne-Romanee border are the third group. The wines here are finer and more aromatic combining characteristics of Nuits and Vosne. These are popular and quite charming with more spice than the vineyards to the south.
 
In Nuits-St-Georges, perhaps more than anywhere else, a knowledge of the vineyards is worth its weight in gold.
 
Our Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges 2016 Dinner features 12 different vineyards from these two top sectors. The wines come from 4 different producers. It is quite a superb array of wines. To view a map of the vineyards of Nuits-St-Georges click here.
 
The dinner will be at Yagiz in South Yarra. We only have 12 seats available so please book in quickly.
