2019 Domaine Robert Chevillon Bourgogne Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1551339 87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A subtle but not imperceptible dollop of wood surrounds the super-fresh aromas of red and blue pinot fruit that is trimmed in hints of earth and underbrush. There is outstandingly density to the appealingly textured middle weight flavors that terminate in a robust and powerful but not really rustic finale. This is a terrific Bourgogne. *Burghound Outstanding Top Value!* Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Bursting with aromas of cherries, raspberries, espresso roast and peony, the 2019 Bourgogne Rouge is medium-bodied, lively and gourmand, with melting tannins and a fleshy core of fruit. Bertrand Chevillon reported yields some 50% below average in 2019 but was justly delighted with the quality of the wines. This is another powerful, structured vintage at this address, but the wines are more vibrant than the fine 2018s and more structurally refined, too. As I've written before, this is one of my favorite addresses in all of Burgundy. Old vines, cultivated soils, moderate yields and long fermentations with entirely destemmed grapes are the order of the day at this address, with the Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes seeing some 20% new oak and the premiers crus 30%. Nuits' Tonnellerie Sirugue is the dominant supplier of barrels. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, taken from barrel because it undergoes a longer barrel maturation than many, has a generous, smudged strawberry and mulberry bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, and slightly confit-like, revealing brown spices toward the finish. Just looking for a little more tension here. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Deep dark colour, dense deep purple, some reduction, dense dark fruit, interesting savoury sandalwood note to finish. Dark but juicy fruit, with a feel of Nuits-St-Georges about it. Tasted: November 2020."
