Domain Chevillon was started in the early 1900s by Symphorien Chevillon who started working approximately thirty acres of vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges giving the Domaine his surname that has lasted generations.
The finesse and complexity of their spread of wines are appreciated throughout the world, and from a region that does not posses any grand cru rated vineyards, Chevillon are seen as a true benchmark of the appellation.
Les Vaucrains is possibly the most structured and muscular cuvee of the Domaine, from a small vineyard about 260 meters in altitude. Deep, clean and elegant, the wine opens with cherries, pomegranate, dark chocolate, smoke and a touch of oak from the barrel. Weighted to the fuller end the juice is dark and supple with a firmer tannin profile that is well integrated, rolling into a lengthy exit that is balanced and poised for a wine of such power.
With Burgundy stocks becoming scarcer over the next few years, some patience would be prudent here to let this slumber and develop in the cellar for some excellent reward in years to come.
