It shows gorgeous fleshiness in its layers of dark red fruit spices and flowers. The Vaucrains is all about textural elegance and volume. The sensual finish makes this very hard to spit. Today the Vaucrains comes across as silkier and more finessed than the St. Georges suggesting it may come around a bit earlier. That may also just be wishful thinking on my part. We will see. This is another breathtaking wine from the Chevillon brothers. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2025.

Somewhat surprisingly for a wine that is typically much more backward and insular than any of its stable mates this is fantastically complex with a kaleidoscopically broad and stunningly complex nose. The palate impression though is classic Vaucrains with its rich full-bodied intense and openly robust large-scaled flavors that culminate in a hugely long yet quite finely balanced finish. This is indisputably a big wine but one that stops short of being forbidding as the copious dry extract buffers the explicitly firm supporting tannins. Still this strikingly good effort is clearly going to require an extended cellar snooze. ♥
