Aromas of cassis, woodsmoke, wild berries, loamy soil, orange rind and spices introduce the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains, a full-bodied, layered and velvety wine that's deep, concentrated and elegantly muscular, with lively acids and rich, powdery structuring tannins. As usual, it's built for the long haul.
An even deep rich purple colour. More open that Les St Georges, in a rich deep plummy character. Sweetness from the oak, an undoubted raft of concentrated dark fruit, the tannins are well behaved and there is great length. Probably a very good prospect.
