1999 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains"

SKU #1038968 95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 1999 Vaucrains is a beautiful young wine, that though still in its primary stage, offers up tremendous promise for the future. The nose is deep, sappy and stunningly pure, offering up notes of black cherries, dark berries, cocoa powder, incipient notes of game, minerals and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and beautifully focused, with the sappiness of the nose echoed in the mid-palate. The finish is very long, very deep and displays great grip, with ripe tannins seamlessly buried in a wave of soil-driven fruit tones. A stunning young Vaucrains, this may well give the monumental 1993 a run for its money. Inner quote mark (1/2006)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I never understood the 1999 out of barrel, however a decade later, this is one mightily impressive Vaucrains. The nose is incredibly pure with wild strawberry, raspberry, crushed stone and stupendous delineation. The palate is plush in texture, very generous although there is still some oak to be subsumed. Very fresh and vibrant with a Chambolle-like finish, there is a sense of completeness to this ’99. But it would benefit from another 2-3 years in bottles. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2011)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An expressive, quite ripe and maturing nose speaks of earth and soft secondary fruit aromas that possess fine complexity leads to rich, full-bodied and quite supple flavors where the supporting tannins are largely if not completely resolved on the impressively long fnish. This is surprisingly civilized, not only for the appellation but also for the vintage as many '99s are still relatively firm and youthful. This by contrast is drinking very well already and while it will certainly hold for years to come there is probably relatively little upside development potential remaining. I should also note that this isn't an especially big wine by the typical standards of the Chevilon Vaucrains. Tasted several times with consistent results. Inner quote mark (3/2013)

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright saturated ruby-red. Enticing aromas of blackberry liqueur and spice cake. Big, rich and backward; uncompromisingly dry and quite powerful. Finishes very long, with the substantial tannins spreading out over the entire palate. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2001)
