Somewhat curiously relative to past vintages, the mouthfeel of the focused, intense and powerful flavors is less rustic than usual though to be sure this is still very Vaucrains in style as there is plenty of punch and youthful austerity present on the driving and hugely long finish. Vaucrains is one of the longest-lived Nuits 1ers and this particular example will be no exception. A stunner but lots of patience will be required.

It manages to retain much better definition than some of its peers from the northern sector of the appellation. The palate is well balanced and harmonious, displaying superb grip and tension, and slightly powdery in texture, with a long tail on the finish. This is a noble Nuits Saint-Georges that revels in the precocity of the vintage. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. -NM
