Domaine Chevillon Chezeaux Bourgogne Hautes Cotes De Nuits, 2018 paired with a Maple Pecan Chicken #FrenchWinophiles

The French Winophiles are travelling to Bourgogne today, better known as the Burgundy region to us in the USA.  Here in the US we simply call it Pinot Noir or Chardonnay as we designate by varietal rather than region.

French Burgundy Wine

I'm sharing a Pinot Noir from Bourgogne with you today.........
Cindy of Grape Experiences is hosting this month and sent us on a quest to find "affordable" burgundy wines.  "Affordable" can be very different for each person.  What I'm willing to spend on wine may sound outrageous to some of my readers.

So, before I went to the store in search of a wine from Bourgogne I had decided that I was going to look at those with a price point below $40.  Let's see how the others chose the wines that they are sharing today.........

The Chevillon family started this winery in 1887 and it has been passed down through the generations. The winery is now operated by Claire Chevillon who was joined by her husband Phillipe Chezeaux in 2000.  

Bourgogne and Pecan Chicken

This bottle of 2018 Pinot Noir was $34 at Total Wine.  It has a 12.5% alcohol content.  It pours a dark burgundy LOL.....

This wine is medium bodied and full of fruit notes.  I paired it with a Pecan Chicken with a Maple Pecan Sauce.   It was a very nice pairing.  I like Pinot Noir because it is a lighter red wine that pairs well with poultry and pork.  That being said, I didn't think that this particular bottle was any better than those that I have purchased from California for a third of the price.

We are not having Twitter Chat this month however there is great information included in our articles that will help you to find an affordable Burgundy for the Holidays.  Pinot Noir and Chardonnay go great with Thanksgiving Fare.   


  1. I'm salivating right now, Wendy!!! What a delicious pairing with such wallet-friendly Pinot Noir from Bourgogne. Cheers!

  2. Great Find on the wine! I love wines from the Haute Côte and with a warming climate, they are getting better all the time (one of the few benefits of climate change)

    1. That is a great way to put up a rainbow Jeff. LOL. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
