The Chevillon family history of winemaking stretches back to the start of the 20th Century with Symphorien Chevillon who began working roughly 12 hectares of vines in Nuits-St-Georges. The following generations continued producing wine from these sites and purchasing additional vineyards, adding Premier Cru parcels to the domaine’s holdings. It was under Robert Chevillon’s tenure that the domaine was put on the map, perfecting their Premier Cru vines that produced age-worthy wines. Today, the domaine is run by the fifth generation winemakers, brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon who took charge of the property since their father Robert’s retirement in 2003. The vines are looked after following the ideas of lutte raisonee and after being 100% destemmed, the grapes have a cool pre-maceration and are then fermented in vats for between three and five weeks. The domaine uses around 30% new oak for its Premier Crus where the wines will stay for 18 months. The domaine sticks to traditional winemaking, delivering attractive fruit-forward wines, which are structured, complex and accessible when young, but known to age well too.
