The 2010 Gouges Vaucrains is going to be a dynamite wine in the fullness of time, but at age five, this is still very much a puppy. The youthfully reticent nose delivers scents of cherries, pomegranate, venison, nutskin, a beautifully complex base of soil, woodsmoke and a dollop of fresh herbs in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very soil-driven in personality, with outstanding mid-palate depth, suave, ripe tannins, great focus and grip and a very, very long, nascently complex and ho, so promising finish. All this great wine requires is time in the cellar.

Good dark red. Ripe wild aromas of cassis chocolate cinnamon and leather. Dense and a bit reduced with a slight youthful rusticity to the flavors of currant and chocolate.

Dense and a bit reduced with a slight youthful rusticity to the flavors of currant and chocolate. Plenty of volume and depth though. Finishes broad fruity chewy and quite long with substantial ripe tannins.

Again there is too much reduction present to evaluate the nose properly. The usual impressive concentration of this wine is definitely present though as this is a big robust and sleekly muscular wine that possess terrific structural element ripeness and culminates in an explosive and palate saturating finish. This very firm but well-balanced effort should age effortlessly for years to come and require at least 15 to arrive at is full majority. ♥ - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding

Tasted blind at Flint Wines’ 2007/2012 Nuits Saint-Georges tasting in London. The 2010 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains has an open and inviting bouquet: crushed rose petals infusing the light red cherry and strawberry fruit. It is delicate but shows exquisite delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, not much depth or body, but demonstrating some pretty, slightly meaty red fruit on the conservative finish. I have encountered superior vintages from the domaine and particularly from this vineyard, but it should give drinking pleasure over the next 12-15 years. Tasted November 2016. - Neal Martin
