Domaine Robert Chevillon
Prized for stylish, fruit-forward representations of Pinot Noir, Domaine Robert Chevillon produces wines that stand out from the rest of the Nuits-Saint-George appellation. The domaine's holdings include several excellent old-vine and premier cru vineyards, managed by brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon- the fifth generation in the family to run the estate. Their father, Robert, is still actively involved as well. Lutte raisonnee is practiced here, though not dogmatically. Grapes are always 100% destemmed, and cold-soaked prior to maceration. Each wine is made exactly the same way, with the only difference being the percentage of new oak for village-level wines (about 20%) versus premiers crus (closer to 30%).
