Producer Information

Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux: The estate was created in 1887 by Eugene Francis Chevillon. In 1947 vineyards in Nuits-Saint-George`s Premier Cru 'Les Saint Georges' were aquired. In 1991 Claire Chevillon took over the estate and in 2000, with her husband Philippe created Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux. Wine making has remained traditional and 'Culture raisonnee de la vigne' is applied i.e a minimal amount of chemicals are used and only as required. The red wines are fermented in open vats to allow 'le pigeac' (pushing the cap back into the must to extract maximum colour and tannins) this takes between18 and 21 days. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 to 18 months. The white wines are fermented in barrel and then aged in oak barrels for 12 months. All harvesting is by hand.
