About the Domaine:
Brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon are the fifth generation managers of this property in Nuits- Saint-Georges, which means they work the vines and make the wines. Their father Robert, for whom the domaine is named, is still active as well. Both brothers bring passion, experience, a tireless work ethic, and intensity to their work at the domaine. Tasting through their palate of Nuits- Saint-Georges is a venerable tour of the appellation. Their Passetoutgrain, a blend of Pinot and Gamay, is a worthy introduction and their rare (two barrels made) Nuits-Saint-Georges Blanc made from the “Pinot Gouges” is an exotic treasure that ages just as long as the domaine’s fabled reds. And their Bourgogne Aligoté, Bourgogne Chardonnay and Bourgogne Rouge are grown and vinified with the same care as their premier crus. It shows.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"This premier cru's position on the south side of Nuits, just below Les Perrières, means that it has a high limestone content and it shows in the freshness of the resulting wine. It's bright, perfumed and focussed, with stylish 30% new wood integration, plenty of structure and depth and a poised finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030" - Tim Atkin (04 Nov 2018)

92-94 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Roncières 1er Cru has an intriguing bouquet of black cherries and bergamot, a touch of Earl Grey developing with aeration. The palate is defined by its filigreed tannin and crisp line of acidity, gentle in style to the point that you almost miss the backbone on the finish. There is something very natural about this Les Roncières, and it should offer 15 to 20 years of drinking pleasure. " Neal Martin - (Jan 2019)

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"I have a weakness for the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Roncières, an inviting wine that bursts with aromas of blackberries, cassis, sweet soil tones and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy with an ample core of succulent fruit, rich structuring tannins and a long, vibrant finish. This will offer a broad drinking window." - William Kelley (31st Jan 2019)

90-93 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Moderate wood sets off a spicy array that includes plum, violet and a suggestion of lavender. The beautifully vibrant middle weight flavors possess an attractive mouthfeel thanks mainly to the notably fine grained tannins shaping the impressively complex and persistent finish. The wood expressed by the nose does resurface though my sense is that it will ultimately be successfully integrated." - (Jan 10, 2019)
