Showing good texture and weight with sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit, it's supported by acidity, medium-weight tannins and a spicy finish.

Mid purple colour, with quite a rounded strawberry and raspberry style fruit, less chiselled than usual but that’s a question of where we are. Lots of fresh acidity behind and the finish does bring out a bit more Vaucrains character

This is a big wine in the context of what is typical for the 2017 vintage and should age effortlessly.

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, showing a little more cohesion than the Les Pruliers, if not quite the same mineral drive as Domaine Chevillon’s. Still, there is decent length and depth to this Les Vaucrains, though it will need several years in bottle. -- Neal Martin

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and dense, but notably open-knit and juicy at the core, concluding with a long, sapid finish. Given how forbidding Vaucrains can be, this is an almost disconcertingly charming effort. - WK
