Taste the new 2018's plus some great back vintages direct from the domaine

It's time to get out and enjoy some great Burgundy and delicious food with fellow wine lovers! Only 12 seats for this dinner.

Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux was created in 1887 by Eugène-François Chevillon, who inherited some parcels of vines from his father Symphorien Chevillon. 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 renamed the domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux. 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.

Les St-Georges is Nuit's most famous vineyard. It has made representations for promotion to Grand Crus status which many argue is well deserved. Les Porets is another serious vineyard. Jasper Morris MW says "The vines grow on deepish, gravelly soil, a mixture which helps to make one of the most striking wines of the appellation, tight in structure in youth and with some powerful, slightly wild aromatics; more liquorice and game than plums or red fruits". 

The dinner will feature the 2018’s including all 5 Nuits Premier Crus “just off the boat”. We will follow that with a bracket of 4 Premier Crus from 2010, 2009 and 2005 including two bottles of Les St-Georges.
