According to Neal Martin, Chevillon has become ‘the leading grower in Nuits St Georges with a raft of superlative wine’. We would agree, absolutely. Run by brothers Denis and Bertrand Chevillon, the domaine wines hold their own with anybody in Burgundy. Enchantingly lively, very much defined by their integrity, their 1er Crus show well from both sides of the appellation, and even the Bourgogne Rouge and village Nuits stand out as particularly exceptional. As a proper bonus, the Chevillons will habitually release to us, direct from their exemplary cellars, a case or two of cuvees from older vintages – most recently some 2009 and 2012. Magnums of Vaucrains, too, for the very lucky few! Marvellous stuff.
