The 2020 vintage has turned out very well indeed
at Domaine Robert Chevillon. With finished alcohols around 13.7% to 13.9%,
these are deep and powerful wines that remain nicely balanced, and they are
built to age. Indeed, in their vibrant, concentrated style, they remind me
somewhat of the domaine's 2016s, something one wouldn't have thought possible
on paper. The bad news is that yields were down, the Chevillon brothers having
lost the equivalent of one entire harvest over the course of the 2019, 2020 and
2021 vintages. 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. – William Kelley (Jan, 2022)
