One of the all-time Nuits the 2002 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Vaucrains bursts forth with cassis liqueur and black cherry aromas. Violets earth tar ink licorice and a huge assortment of candied black fruits coat the taster’s palate. Its stunning concentration and depth are matched by its nobility balance and length. This blockbuster’s tannin is so sweet and supple as to be barely noticeable in its extraordinary finish. Projected maturity: 2008-2022.

The 2002 Vaucrains from the Gouges family is an excellent example of its vintage, wafting from the glass in a nascently complex and very classy aromatic constellation of black cherries, cassis, venison, an outstanding signature of soil (particularly for a 2002!), youthful Nuits nutskin, a touch of lead pencil and the first signs of the autumnal elements that will emerge with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very refined for a relatively young Vaucrains, with a good core of black fruit, moderate tannins and lovely acids adding bounce and brightness on the very long, focused and very well-balanced finish. If one were to nitpick, the mid-palate depth here is not quite in the same league vintages like 2001 or 1999, but this is a very strong 2002 red Burgundy that will be a lovely drink in a few more years’ time.
