The Vaucrains is the most powerful and structurally assertive of Chevillon’s wines, its smoky bouquet of grilled squab, cassis and rosehip introducing a very full-bodied, richly tannic wine with exceptional texture and concentration, as well as lovely energy. There’s a real abundance of tannin here that makes this classic Vaucrains, and there would be little point purchasing this for near-term consumption as it isn’t realistically likely to peak before 2035, but the patient should be amply rewarded. - William Kelley, Decanter

The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has an outstanding bouquet with intense black cherry and blackcurrant fruit infused with minerals, the oak seamlessly integrated and demonstrating superb delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of spicy black fruit. I admire the manner in which the oak is fused. There is real density on the feisty finish that shows great persistence. Excellent. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. Neal Martin - Vinous Media

Tasting note: A fresh but brooding nose displays plenty of sauvage character on the ripe dark currant, plum and humus scents. The big-bodied and robust flavors also possess excellent power that continues onto the austere and markedly firm finish that delivers explosively fine length. Like the Les St. Georges, this bold effort is very Vaucrains and is going to require a long snooze in a chilly cellar because it won't be approachable young. Outstanding - Allen Meadows - Burghound
