Tasting Notes

A brooding nose only reluctantly reveals notes of ripe and ultra-fresh dark currant, earth and a smoked game nuance. There is outstanding density to the powerful, robust and bold big-bodied flavors that possess seriously good concentration where the sap does a good job of buffering the very firm tannic spine shaping the superbly persistent finish. This is textbook Vaucrains and as such, it's going to need extended cellaring.

Score: 91 - 94

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2031+ 15 January 2018

The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a complex and engaging bouquet with perfumed, quite floral red berry fruit mixed with subtle sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, classic in style with just the right amount of dryness on the finish. This is a very well crafted Nuits Saint-Georges that should age with style, though it needs more ballast. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
