2009 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Chaignots" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1436973 92 points John Gilman

 Not surprisingly, the 2009 Chevillon Chaignots is very sappy and generous on the nose, as it offers up scents of black cherries, cocoa, blood orange, vinesmoke, herb tones, a lovely base of soil and a fine framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is decidedly more tight and serious than the nose suggests, with its full-bodied format tightly-knit with ripe tannins, good acids and really fine length and grip on the finish. This is rock solid at the core, and though it has a fair bit of tannin to resolve, the tannins are suave and beautifully-integrated into the body of the wine. A very, very fine vintage of Chaignots this year.  (11/2010)

 The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les Chaignots possesses notable freshness and verve while also showing the ripeness of the year, a very attractive combination. Freshly cut flowers, minerals and spices add energy and vibrancy to the dark red fruit. The Chaignots could use another year or two in bottle, but if opened in advance it is showing very, very well even today.(AG)  (4/2012)

 Graphite, lilac, game and slight vegetal notes augment the cherry core in this pungent, spicy red. Aromatic and silky, with firm tannins framing the long finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. (BS, Web-2012)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is a relatively fresh '09 with an expressive nose that offers up notes of plum, cassis and very ripe black berry liqueur notes. The attractively textured and very rich flavors are supple, round and supported by relatively fine tannins and plenty of mouth coating dry extract. I like the balance and overall sense of harmony of this seductively textured example though it's worth noting that some might find this to be just a little too ripe as there are hints of mocha on the finish. *Outstanding*  (1/2012)

K&L Notes

Named for their father, Robert, Domaine Robert Chevillon is currently under the management of fifth-generation winegrowers and brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon (though Robert remains involved). They are lucky to have some of the best old vine plots in the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation; if Nuits-Saint-George had Grand Cru designations, several in their domaine would undoubtedly be promoted. Their success in transforming great fruit into beautiful, terroir-driven wines along with their consistency in producing wines of distinction and balance regardless of the nature of the vintage, year after year, has not gone unnoticed by the critics and serious Burgundy lovers, so grab these great 2009s while you can. "The track record of the Chevillon wines in the cellar is one of the most remarkable aspects of this storied domaine," writes noted importer Kermit Lynch. "We regularly have the good fortune to taste back through the past three decades of vintages of all the various premier crus and the wines always more than convincing - they are among Burgundy's very best. In fact, I have often been more disappointed with grand cru bottlings than I am with the top-tier Chevillon premier crus...grand cru quality at a premier cru price!" Antonio Galloni adds: "My tasting with Denis and Bertrand Chevillon was one of the highlights of my most recent trip to Burgundy. The domaine's 2009s are flat-out beautiful. Readers will not want to miss these gems." (4/2012)
