Domaine Chevillon, Pinot Noir, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Les Saint-Georges" Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France 2019
One of the oldest climates, this place was already planted in the year 1000. In 1023 it was given by Humbert, archdeacon of Autun, to the Saint-Denis chapter in Vergy; a barony to which Nuits was attached. It is said to have belonged to a Saint-Georges brotherhood founded by the Barbier de Peulle family in 1470. At the end of last century, Nuits was authorised to join its name to the name of the famous "Saint-Georges" vintage.

Its sustained colour announces its complex aromas dominated by the pureness of its fruitiness that evolves towards roasted and spicy notes with fine animal nuances, musk and fur. Its rich and complex structure combines power and elegance. A very good candidate for ageing 8/15 years. From its youth this vintage can seduce with its harmony.
