Domaine Chevillion Vieilles Vignes, Nuits-St-Georges 2018
Brothers Denis and Bertrand are current custodians of the beautiful Burgundies of Chevillon. These are benchmark examples of Nuits-Saint-Georges with none of the rusticity commonly associated with the village.
Open knit in style, they destem all their grapes, lending purity and incredible fruit definition to the wines. Vine age of this Vieille Vignes is 50 years, and vineyard work is all physical work over chemicals. With conservative new oak use, in 2018 this is again the appellation’s supreme standard bearer.
