Domaine Chevillon Bourgogne Passetoutgrain 2020

Undoubtedly, if Domaine Robert Chevillon were located in either Vosne-Romanee or Chambolle-Musigny, their wines would likely be both scarce and exorbitantly priced. However, their presence in Nuits-Saint-Georges, a village notable for its absence of grand cru sites, has meant these wines remain somewhat of a hidden gem for many enthusiasts. Despite this, Chevillon's offerings are among the most prestigious in Burgundy, consistently excelling regardless of the vintage's challenges, a feat matched by only a select few esteemed estates throughout the Cote.

Currently, Robert Chevillon's sons, Bertrand and Denis, have taken up the mantle, embodying the same fervent commitment to showcasing the pinnacle of Pinot Noir. Their approach involves rigorous attention to detail in the vineyards throughout the year, with grapes being handpicked, meticulously sorted, and de-stemmed. This is followed by a cold maceration in vats for 5-6 days and a spontaneous fermentation process that spans 2-3 weeks. The wines then undergo maturation over 15 to 18 months in barrels, utilizing a blend of 30% new and 70% once-used barrels.

The Chevillon Bourgogne Passetoutgrain is a rich and fruit-forward blend, combining two-thirds Gamay with one-third Pinot Noir. The grapes are carefully selected from three lieux-dits in proximity to Nuits-Saint-Georges: Champs d'Argent, Croix Blanche, and Petit Chaliot.
