Like Corton, a wind of change is sweeping through Nuits-St-Georges. Whilst retaining the commune's character numerous makers are producing wines with more finesse and greater drinkability. One of those makes is Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux.
Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux is an 8.61 hectare estate in Nuits-St-Georges. They own 14 different appellations but the jewels in the crown are their five 1er Cru Reds including Les St-Georges.
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 2011's were incredibly good. Recently they were reviewed by Bourgogne Aujourd'Hui (Burgundy Today) and Les Porrets received a score of 18 and the Les St-Georges 17.5. These are scores usually reserved for the very top Grand Crus. The 2011's are on the way from France. Click here to view.
Quality is one thing but price also needs to be attractive and the domaine is very reasonable. Make sure you check out all five of their 1er Crus - Les St-Georges is the most famous but the other wines are also very interesting. Unfortunately, no tasting notes yet but these will be exceptional wines from the excellent 2012 vintage.

With Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les St-Georges applying for promotion to Grand Cru status there is considerable interest in the commune. Les St-Georges has long been considered one of the likely candidates based on quality and the feeling that Nuits-St-Georges is somewhat hard done by with no Grand Crus. You can read an article in Decanter Magazine here.
Compare this to other Les St-Georges in the market. This is a bargain!
