"Chevillon is always so appealing out of the blocks that I find that I generally have none left in my cellar five years out from any given vintage, though I buy the with great regularity. The 2012 is certainly going to be difficult to keep one’s hands off of once it arrives in the cellar, as it is a beautiful wine that promises to offer up (yet again) very fine drinking in its youth. The superb nose wafts from the glass in a sappy blend of red plums, cherries, cocoa, nutskin, a complex base of soil tones, vanillin oak and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy, with excellent mid-palate depth, lovely transparency, good acids and excellent focus and grip on the long, suavely-tannic finish. This is a beautiful bottle in the making and an absolutely classic vintage for the Chevillon Chaignots. 2020-2045+." 92+pts - John Gilman, View From the Cellar

"Chevillon's 2012s capture the power and richness of the vintage in spades. Yields were down 30-50% ...Chevillon pursued a gentler approach to winemaking in 2012, as he did not want to over-extract. It worked. The 2012s are fabulous. 90-92 pts" Antonio Galloni
