There is fine verve to the imposing, robust and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that are shaped by very firm and somewhat rustic tannins on the very powerful and palate coating finish. Despite the considerable size and weight this remains very well balanced though note well that this will require plenty of cellar time. In sum, this is textbook Vaucrains.

The palate is medium-bodied with fine and quite "solid" tannin that lend this backbone, good grip in the mouth with a punchy spicy finish that leaves you wanting more. There is a lot of substance here and it still feels tightly wound, but I suspect that it will mature well. One of Chauvenet's superior 2013s. Tasted September 2016. - NM
