Nuits St Georges les Vaucrains, Domaine Robert Chevillon 2012

Tasting Notes

**Note: from a 1.5 ha parcel**
A very fresh if subdued, even brooding nose features notes of both red and dark currants, game, earth and a hint of humus. There is outstanding size, weight and punch to the big-bodied and very serious flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration as well as markedly firm tannins on the strikingly long and complex finish. This is very Vaucrains.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (53), January 2014

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Vaucrains was showing quite a lot of reduction on the nose, though it seems to clear with aeration, thus revealing blackcurrant pastilles and light marine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, very pure dark berry fruit laced with spice and truffle, long and sustained in the mouth with stocky and quite extracted finish. There is some oak to be assimilated here, but there is clearly potential if it can manifest more elegance and finesse. This is a fine 2012 from Chevillon.
