About the producer

Bertrand and Denis Chevillon have taken after their father Robert and maintained the impeccable reputation of this famous 13ha domaine. Created in the early 1900s by the Chevillon family, their wines stand for finesse and complexity and are appreciated by Burgundy lovers far and wide. Blessed with many Premiers Crus, the domaine also produces a textbook Nuits St Georges with enough succulent fruit to make it approachable when young. Both brothers bring passion, experience, a tireless work ethic and intensity to their work at the domaine.

Vines are only treated when necessary. Vines naturally achieve low yields. Grapes are fully de-stemmed. Primary fermentation in stainless steel cuves and then wines are racked into barrels. The Bourgogne Rouge and Nuits St Georges ‘Vieilles Vignes’ are aged in 20% new oak, then bottled after approximately 16 months. All others are aged in approximately 30% new oak depending on the vintage and bottled after approximately 20 months
